The Orioles and Angels are back playing after a 24-minute rain delay, resuming play in the bottom of the sixth.

When the Orioles took the field in the top of the seventh, there were two obvious absences: second baseman Brian Roberts and pitcher Brian Matusz.

Had to assume Matusz wouldn't come back after the rain delay, not after throwing 95 pitches (56 strikes) and having a 9-1 lead.

Matusz's line: 6 IP, 7H, 1 ER, 0BB, 3Ks.

Roberts also was pulled. He suffered a left shin contusion in the first inning when he was hit on the leg on a pickoff attempt. He remained in the game – until the delay.
