BALTIMORE (AP) — Pinch-hitter Cameron Maybin singled in the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning, Kole Calhoun and Andrelton Simmons homered and the surging Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-4 Sunday.

The Angels took advantage of nine walks to win the deciding matchup of a three-game series in which they hit 11 home runs.

With the score 4-all in the eighth, Calhoun and Luis Valbuena drew walks from Brad Brach (3-4). With two outs, Maybin stepped in for Juan Graterol and delivered an opposite-field liner to right.

Maybin missed the first two games of the series with a sore knee and was in a 5-for-27 funk since coming off the disabled list on Aug. 7.

Cam Bedrosian (3-2) worked one hitless inning and Bud Norris got three outs for his 19th save.
