Recap: LA Angels vs. Baltimore

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Jered Weaver tossed the ninth complete game of his career and was backed by a five-run fifth inning, as the Angels took a 6-3 decision over the Orioles in the second meeting of a three-game set.

Weaver (3-0) needed 114 pitches to finish off his gem, having allowed just five hits and three runs while fanning five.

"My fastball command worked early, and then I mixed in some offspeed late," Weaver said. "It was great to go out in the ninth and give our bullpen a rest."

Kendrys Morales and Erick Aybar each had two hits and drove in a run, while Bobby Abreu added a two-run single in the pivotal frame, sending the Angels to back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Matt Wieters homered and drove in all three runs for Baltimore, which had won five of seven entering the series.

Both Weaver and his counterpart, Jake Arrieta (1-1), dominated the first four innings before beginning to look human in the fifth.

Weaver set down the first 12 batters he faced prior to Adam Jones beating out an infield single, and Wieters, on a 3-0 count, hammered one into the right- field bleachers for his fifth home run of the season.

Arrieta retired 12 in a row after Aybar's leadoff single, but the Angels got to him in their half of the fifth.

Mark Trumbo drove in the Los Angeles' first run by smacking an opposite-field single to right to bring in Torii Hunter. Two walks loaded the bases for Aybar, whose one-out single to left tied the game.

Abreu followed with a comebacker up the middle to bring in Maicer Izturis and Peter Bourjos, and Morales chased Arrieta with a run-scoring base hit to left.

Arrieta wound up getting charged with five runs on six hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings.

"Everything snowballed in the fifth," Arrieta said. "I let a really good outing slip away."

Jones tripled and scored on a Wieters groundout in the seventh, but the Angels got the run back in the bottom half when Hunter's groundout scored Albert Pujols, who reached on Mark Reynolds's throwing error.
