Pearce' RBI single in 10th wins it for O's
Steve Pearce's RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning lifted the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday.
Baltimore also got homers from Manny Machado, J.J. Hardy and Nolan Reimold.
Garrett Richards (1-3) making his first relief appearance after five starts in place of the injured Jered Weaver, gave up a leadoff single through the box by Adam Jones. Jones was forced on a grounder by Reimold who advanced to second on Hardy's grounder before Pearce lined an 0-1 pitch to right field for the deciding run.
Tommy Hunter (1-1) pitched one inning to get the win.
Freddy Garcia allowed two runs and three hits over 6 2-3 innings in his Orioles debut after getting staked to a 4-0 lead. The 36-year-old right-hander took a no-hitter into the seventh before Erick Aybar led off with a looping single to center.
