ANAHEIM, Calif. -- For the first 15 innings of this series, Orioles pitchers had flirted with danger. They put runners on but saw them erased with key double plays. They moved one pitch away from giving up the lead but instead got a clutch strikeout and kept it intact.

However, in the seventh inning last night, with their seventh straight victory in their sights, the luck of the Orioles and their starting pitcher, Daniel Cabrera, ran out. Gary Matthews Jr. laced a go-ahead, two-run, two-out single with the bases loaded, sending the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-2 victory over the Orioles in front of an announced 43,012.
