The Angels' slim hopes of a playoff appearance took a major hit on Saturday, with Los Angeles losing its second game in Baltimore and Texas beating Seattle to give the Rangers a 4.5-game lead in the American League West.

Los Angeles has now lost four of its last six in what was supposed to be the easy part of its schedule. Starter Ervin Santana gave up two homers in a five-run first for the Orioles and the team got shut down by Zach Britton, who allowed just three hits and a run in seven innings.

Texas rallied from an early three-run deficit, as Josh Hamilton had four hits and drove in three while hitting his first daytime home run of the season.
