Monday, June 6, 2011
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Brian Matusz and three relievers combined on a seven-hitter, and the Baltimore Orioles beat Oakland 4-2 Monday night to extend the Athletics' losing streak to a season-high seven games.
Matt Wieters had two hits, an RBI and scored a run for the Orioles, who took a 4-0 lead after two innings against Gio Gonzalez (5-4).
Adam Rosales homered for the A's, who have lost 15 of 19 to fall a season-worst seven games under .500 (27-34). Rosales was playing in his first game of the year after a stint on the disabled list with a broken right foot.
Matusz (1-0) allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings to earn his first win of the season. He spent the first two months on the DL with a strained left oblique muscle.
