Orioles 9 - Angels 7
Koji Uehara entered the game in the 7th with a runner on second and 2 outs and the Orioles up, 9-7.  Uehara got the final out of the inning in the 7th, but not before loading the bases on a walk and an infield single.  He did much better in the 8th by striking out the side.  Final line: 1.1 IP, 5 BF, 1 H, 3 SO, 0 BB, 0 R, 0 ER.

Hisanori Takahashi entered the game in the 5th with the bases loaded and 2 out in the 5th inning.  Takahashi wriggled out of the inning by ground out to first.  He then gave up 2 runs (unearned) in the 6th after the defense behind him made 3 costly errors.  Final line: 1.1 IP, 8 BF, 1 H, 1 SO, 0 BB, 2 R, 0 ER.


Kazuo Matsui went 1-for-3 with a walk, a home run, a run scored, and an RBI against the New Orleans Zephyrs on the 4th.  Matsui started at second and batted eighth.
