ANAHEIM, Calif. Scott Tolzien Jersey . - For the second straight night, the Baltimore Orioles got a strong performance from a starting pitcher who spent the All-Star break in the minor leagues and stayed on his regular routine. It worked for Miguel Gonzalez, just like it did for Bud Norris. Gonzalez took a two-hit shutout into the eighth inning, Jonathan Schoop homered and J.J. Hardy hit two RBI doubles to lead the Orioles to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. Gonzalez (5-5) was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk, where he was optioned on July 11 so that he wouldnt get stale after consecutive eight-inning no-decisions. Norris, who was optioned to Double-A Bowie on July 10, beat the Angels 4-2 Monday night in his return to the rotation. Were fortunate they both had (minor league) options," manager Buck Showalter said. "I think Bud was a day away from not being able to get optioned because of his service time, so it was a good catch by our front office. "It worked out well for both of them because they also got to spend some time in their hometowns out here. You just dont want to see guys lie around too long during the break and be inactive, but we have a lot of starters with options. So thats why we were able to do it." Gonzalez (5-5) allowed two runs and three hits in 7 2-3 innings, including a two-run homer in the eighth by All-Star game MVP Mike Trout after a walk to No. 9 hitter Hank Conger. The Angels other hits against Gonzalez were singles by Efren Navarro in the third and fifth innings. "I think it was beneficial for me, to go down there and keep doing what I was doing, and not getting that extra rest — especially after the last two outings I had," Gonzalez said. "Im pretty happy about everything in general tonight. I gave us a chance to win a ballgame." Showalter added: "Thats as good as you can see a guy pitch, especially in a hostile environment against a really good team. Thats about as sharp as Ive seen Miggy in a while. He had everything working and everything at his disposal, and he had command of it." Tommy Hunter, making his 200th career appearance, retired Albert Pujols on a grounder for the final out of the eighth and Zach Britton pitched a perfect ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances. Hunter, who was converted into a full-time reliever by the Orioles last season, lost his closer role to Britton in mid-May after consecutive blown saves. Since then, Hunter has yielded three runs and struck out 11 in 18 1-3 spanning 17 appearances — and has not allowed an earned run in a career-best 12 straight outings. Britton has allowed eight runs and fanned 27 in 29 1-3 innings over 29 appearances since taking over as closer. "So far, Zachs done a good job," Showalter said. "But who knows? We might need Tommy to go back there again. I dont know if anybodys smart enough to know exactly how things are going to turn out. But so far, so good." Angels left-hander Hector Santiago matched zeroes with Gonzalez through five innings, allowing just two hits before rookie Mike Morin took over in the sixth. "Early on I was just trying to battle a little fatigue," Santiago said. "I was kind of under the weather the last couple of days. I definitely felt the fatigue kind of like building up right there in that first two innings. Then I just had a high pitch count, so I had to maintain myself and control it." Morin (2-3) threw his second pitch into the dirt and to the backstop as his left knee appeared to buckle. Manager Mike Sciocsia went out with a trainer to check on him, and the right-hander made three warmup tosses before striking out Adam Jones and Nelson Cruz. But Chris Davis reached on an infield hit and came all the way around on Hardys double to right-centre. Schoop homered to left-centre two pitches later for his eighth homer — all on the road. Schoop was originally in the No. 9 spot in the order, but got bumped up to seventh after third baseman Manny Machado was scratched just before game time because of tightness in his lower back. "Ive never had something like this before. It just spazzed up on me," Machado said. "The trainers worked on it a little bit and I went back out there before the game, but it kept locking up on me. So I thought it was just better to sit it out and let someone else take my place and help the team win. Its still a little tight, but I got a shot and well see where we are tomorrow." Hardy drove in Baltimores final run in the eighth against Fernando Salas. NOTES: With the victory, the Orioles ended the Angels streak of 10 consecutive series won at home. RHP Chris Tillman puts his 6-0 road record on the line against Jered Weaver in Wednesday nights series finale. ... The Angels hadnt lost a series at the "Big A" since May 5-7, when the Yankees took two of three. ... The Orioles cleared a spot for Gonzalez on the 25-man roster by optioning RHP Preston Guilmet to Triple-A. Erik Swoope Jersey . Left back Layvin Kurzawa put Monaco ahead in the 36th minute with a low shot after being set up by midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, sweeping the ball in after running onto Kondogbias cross from the left. Kamar Aiken Jersey .C. - Brent Sutter scored 1:32 into extra time as the Charlotte Checkers came from behind to defeat the visiting Abbotsford Heat 5-4 on Sunday in American Hockey League action.RENTON, Wash. - Rookie Brock Coyle is about to become the next option for the Seattle Seahawks at middle linebacker.Seattle linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. said Wednesday the Seahawks are planning on starting Coyle at middle linebacker this week against Oakland. The undrafted rookie out of Montana has only played a handful of snaps during the season but impressed Seattles coaches enough during the preseason that theyre comfortable with the move.Its his position to lose. Hes in there right now. He can mess it up by a bad week. We could change our mind, Norton said. I think we were pleasantly surprised by Brock in his performance this summer, throughout the camp, throughout the preseason. He stepped in when Bobby (Wagner) was out then. Hes going to do the same thing now. We know exactly what were getting and were very pleased with what we have. Thats why hes here.The Seahawks have been without Wagner for the past two weeks because of a toe injury suffered against Dallas. Seattles initial move was to slide K.J. Wright to middle linebacker and insert Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith at outside linebacker. But its unknown whether Smith will be healthy for Sunday after suffering a groin injury against Carolina.Rather than completely juggling the linebacker corps, the Seahawks are planning to move Wright back outside and insert the rookie. Coyles representatives first tweeted congratulations for their client getting his first start.Thats why our depth is so important and Brocks work that he had with Bobby out in the summertime is very important, Norton said.Coyle has appeared in every game this season but mostly onn special teams. Johnny Unitas Jersey. He has played less than 10 defensive snaps. But he got plenty of time during the preseason when Wagner was out with a hamstring injury. Coyle started Seattles first two preseason games and saw extensive time in the other two.Coyle is the latest undrafted rookie to find his way onto Seattles roster, a group that includes wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, tight end Cooper Helfet and backup safety Jeron Johnson.Even with Coyle likely to start, the Seahawks will likely rotate their healthy linebackers. The Seahawks are high on the improvement of rookie Kevin Pierre-Louis, who saw his most extensive play last week against Carolina. Pierre-Louis was in for 20 defensive snaps last week, had three tackles and his blitz on Cam Newton in the third quarter led to an interception.He had some exciting plays, Carroll said. Hes real fast and he played real fast, looked fast on the field. Looked good in the open field, blitzed really well and hell be a part of the plan if Malcolm cant go this week.NOTES: Center Max Unger (foot) and CB Byron Maxwell (calf) have a chance of returning this week from their injuries, Carroll said. Unger was hurt in Seattles Week 5 win at Washington, while Maxwell was injured a week later against Dallas. ... Carroll again did not have a timeline for the return of Wagner (toe) or TE Zach Miller (ankle). Carroll said Miller was feeling the best hes felt by far after having treatment last weekend. Its the first really positive sign weve had, Carroll said of Millers recovery.___AP NFL websites: and ;Discount NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic ' ' '
