And then on Wednesday, all was calm. No hit batters, no ejections, no bubbling testosterone.

In their rubber match against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles committed two errors, left seven runners on base, walked two batters with the bases loaded and nearly coughed up a five-run lead.

The Angels, in an effort to inject on-base percentage into the lineup and boost their offense behind the plate, acquired veteran catcher Chris Iannetta from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for pitcher Tyler Chatwood, the team announced Wednesday. In 112....
