Markakis Comes Through

The O's avoided a sweep and notched a winning road trip with a 3-2, 10-inning victory over the Angels on Sunday afternoon. It was the first time the Birds have had a winning record on a 10-game trip since 2004.

Wei-Yin Chen continues to improve with each appearance; he allowed just one run on five hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings, striking out five. He exited after issuing back-to-back walks and the O's down 1-0, eventually settling for a no-decision. The 'pen was solid yet again, and Jim Johnson picked up his seventh save in seven opportunities this season.

Nick Markakis put the O's on the board with a two-out, two-run single in the top of the eighth before the Angels tied it up in the bottom of the frame. Markakis laced another two-out single in the tenth to plate Robert Andino with the winning run.

The O's (9-7) have Monday off before starting a six-game homestand on Tuesday. Tommy Hunter will take the hill against Toronto.
