"We didn't help matters some," Showalter said. "We had a double play ball and about three or four that flares that fell in there. Just got away from him. The baseball gods, after two good games kind of some things fell in our favor it was just the opposite today."
Jimenez remained in the game until the sixth inning, when reliever Dylan Bundy took over. Bundy got out of that inning, but allowed four runs in the seventh to end any ideas of a comeback. Vance Worley rebounded from walking the only two batters he faced Saturday for a scoreless eighth.
The Orioles' productive seventh inning was preceded by large stretches of futility, featuring four strikeouts looking, two more swinging.
Jimenez hurting: May has been a bad month for Jimenez, whose day finished with six earned runs on eight hits and three walks on his ledger. He has now allowed 24 earned runs on 38 hits in 27 1/3 innings this month, with 16 walks and 18 strikeouts in that span. He has a 7.81 ERA in May, bringing his season mark to 6.04, with a 1.82 WHIP.
Out at home again: Jimenez' third inning could have been worse if not for a bizarre trend continuing for the Angels. For the third straight game, they ran into an out at home plate on a ground ball to an Orioles fielder. Second baseman Johnny Giavotella was thrown out at home for the second out of the third inning Sunday on a ground ball to first baseman Chris Davis.
Machado repeats rare feat: Saturday was the first time in the career of the slumping Machado that the same pitcher had struck him out three times in one game, with Shoemaker achieving that feat. Machado improbably repeated that Sunday, striking out three times against Weaver en route to an 0-for-4 on the day. He is four for his last 36, with a dozen strikeouts during that time.
