Play It Again

Loux shines

Angels right-hander Shane Loux (pronounced Lukes) entered Wednesday's game with a 1-6 career record and a 6.46 ERA in 24 big league games, including 10 starts. The 11th start of his career was one of his best. He lasted six innings, allowing five hits, two walks and one run. He struck out three and picked up the win, his second as a big leaguer and first since Sept. 24, 2008.

Moeller bags triple

Reserve catcher Chad Moeller, getting a start in an afternoon game, did something he hadn't accomplished in more than three years: a triple. In the second inning, Moeller hit a line drive into left-center and didn't stop running until he slid into third. It was his seventh career triple and first since Sept. 15, 2005. Moeller also doubled in the seventh.

On deck

The Orioles have a day off Thursday, their first since April 16, and they'll be traveling to Toronto, where they'll face the Blue Jays at 7:07 p.m. Friday. Mark Hendrickson (1-3, 5.40) will pitch against the club that originally signed him. Hendrickson is 2-6 with a 4.85 ERA in 13 games (10 starts) against Toronto. The Jays counter with 2003 Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay (4-1, 3.75).
