BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have a knack for winning in extra innings, and it has nothing to do with luck. Manny Machado homered leading off the 12th inning, and the Orioles survived a rocky outing from starter Chris Tillman in a 7-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. Baltimore is 12-3 in extra innings and has won seven straight. "To do that, youve got to have a good effort out of your bullpen -- and we did tonight," manager Buck Showalter said. Orioles relievers gave up one run and five hits over the final seven innings. After Ryan Webb (3-1) worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the 12th, Machado took care of business in the bottom half with his first career game-ending homer. Machado hit a 1-2 breaking ball from Cory Rasmus (2-1) into the seats in left field to end the back-and-forth duel between AL contenders. The Orioles were 16-2 in extra innings in 2012, and this is shaping up to be that kind of year. "We have good chemistry in the clubhouse like we did back then and obviously we have a good bullpen as well," Machado said. Adam Jones and Nick Markakis homered for Baltimore, playing its first home game since the All-Star break. Josh Hamilton homered and had three RBIs for the Angels, who have dropped eight of their last 11 against the Orioles. Los Angeles got a solid performance from its relievers, who allowed three hits over six-plus innings. "Our bullpen did a terrific job," manager Mike Scioscia said. "You cant ask much more from those guys. We couldnt get that one hit that would get the game on our terms." A potential pitching duel between Jered Weaver and Tillman turned into a slugfest, as both former All-Stars left after the fifth inning with Baltimore leading 6-5. Weaver gave up a season-high six earned runs and walked four. Tillman yielded five runs, three earned, and six hits -- including three doubles and a home run. After Hamilton delivered a run-scoring grounder in the top of the first, the Orioles scored twice in the bottom half. Jones drove an 0-2 fastball over the left-field wall -- giving him 20 home runs for a fourth straight season -- and J.J. Hardy added an RBI single. Los Angeles capitalized on a throwing error by Tillman to take a 3-2 lead in the second before Machado doubled in a run in the Orioles half. After Hank Conger hit a sacrifice fly for the Angels in the fourth, Weaver issued two walks in the bottom half and Markakis followed with a drive off the right-field foul pole to make it 6-4. Hamilton homered in the fifth and tied it in the seventh with an infield hit. TRAINING ROOM Angels: Left-hander C.J. Wilson (right ankle sprain) pitched 5 1-3 innings for Double-A Arkansas on Monday night in his first rehab start and could return soon. "There is definitely one scenario where it could be this weekend, but were not going to commit to anything," Scioscia said. Orioles: First baseman Chris Davis did not play after being sent home with a stomach virus. "He was sick all day (Monday) and didnt seem to be making a marked improvement," Showalter said. ON DECK Angels: Right-hander Garrett Richards (11-3) seeks to rebound after his seven-game winning streak ended last week against Detroit. In his only previous start against Baltimore, Richards allowed a career-high seven runs in 2012. Orioles: Kevin Gausman makes his first career start against the Angels as the Orioles seek their ninth win in 11 games at Camden Yards. WEAVERS WOES The Angels were 7-0 in Weavers previous seven starts, and it took a comeback for the right-hander to stay unbeaten since June 16. "Fastball was up for most of the time and I couldnt really figure out how to get it down," he said. "Every time I left it up they put good swings on it. Any time you get the ball up in this park its not going to work out too well." Emerson Jersey

Beirne, whose December departure is the latest in a string of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment moves, says he leaves the team with plenty of good memories. "This Saturdays TFC match will be my last with the club," Beirne tweeted Thursday. "Thank you for 7 seasons of awesome moments! So proud to have been a part of it!" Toronto wraps up its season Saturday against the visiting Montreal Impact. Beirne, 47, was offered another position outside of soccer at Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment but declined. "The organization structure changed with the new leadership," Beirne, choosing his words carefully, said in an interview. He already has a new job lined up, although he declined to detail his next challenge. MLSE president and CEO Tim Leiweke has rung in the changes since taking over MLSE this summer. Toronto FC president and Kevin Payne was fired last month, with Tim Bezbatchenko taking over as GM. Leiweke, the man who brought David Beckham to MLS, has been particularly hands-on with TFC since taking charge. Leiweke, Bezbatchenko and manager Ryan Nelsen recently returned from a scouting trip to Europe in search of marquee talent. MLSE revamped its senior management in July and COO Tom Anselmi stepped down last month. Asked if he would have stayed with the soccer team if he had his druthers, Beirne replied diplomatically: "I will always be part of TFC." While Toronto has been a model franchise in many regards off the field, its lack of success on the pitch has been galling — and fan support has suffered as a result. The 5-17-11 team has missed the playoffs for the seventh straight year. The team has averaged 18,439 at BMO Field, which ranks 10th in the leaguee this season, and attendance plummeted to 12,627 in a rain-drenched loss to Sporting Kansas City last month.dddddddddddd Beirne joined MLSE in 1994 and became director of business operations for TFC in May 2006, switching from his job in charge of the Leafs and Raptors tickets operations. Despite the continued struggles on the pitch, Beirne sees light at the end of the Toronto FC tunnel. "Between Tim and Ryan, I think the football side of things is in really good hands," he said. He pointed to past lack of consistency in coaches and players. "Thats not a shot at anybody involved along the way. Its just been our reality for seven years. So as a fan of TFC, Im very optimistic for the future." As vice-president of business operations, Beirne essentially was in charge of everything at the club outside the pitch. He makes no excuses, but sees more positives than negatives at the club. "Weve made our bed, when youre talking about our reputation or how fans perceive us," he said. "However, Im enormously proud, of not only what happens at BMO Field on Saturdays in the summer but whats happening up at the KIA Training Ground, whats happening with our the academy, how the other teams in Canada have followed suit. "I think were in the middle of a sea change and all positive for the game in Canada," he added. "Im just enormously proud to have been a small part of it." Beirne was a popular figure among many TFC supporters, who saw the same kind of enthusiasm for the club as they had. "This is my baby and the baby of a handful of us here," he said. "My wife reminded me this morning if you love something, youve got to set it free. "So I am looking forward to taking in the games from the stands. I still have season tickets and I wont be leaving any time soon." Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys
