There's no foolproof way to end a losing streak, but playing the worst team in the league is definitely a step in the right direction. The Angels (41-41) continue their east coast road trip with a three-game stint at Camden Yards taking on the Orioles (23-57). While Boston was not very welcoming to the Halos, Baltimore seems like it is ushering in the Angels with open arms. The Orioles, boasting the MLB's worst record, have the third-worst team ERA (4.87) and are even lower in the ranks offensively, batting a measly .227 for 29th overall. Although the Halos showed resiliance in Wednesday's game in Bean Town, it seems like a trip to the Inner Harbor could be the best place for them to regroup and put together their first complete game in over a week.

Angels vs. Orioles: The One to Watch
Heading into Baltimore, the Angels have suffered a lot of recent setbacks, but there has been a shinning light at the end of the tunnel: Kole Calhoun. Since his return from the DL June 18, the Red Rocket has been tearing the cover off the ball, batting .321 over the last 10 games-- a far cry from the .145 he was carrying prior to his injury. As a result, manager Mike Scioscia has been inclined to move Calhoun up in the lineup from his typical 8 or 9 spot to a more consistent 7 spot (Calhoun even hit third in the opener vs. the Red Sox). With the combination of a weaker Orioles pitching staff and a hot bat, the lefty could put Camden Yards' short 318-foot right field wall to use.
