ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Nick Punto, Michael Cuddyer and Jason Bartlett homered and Kevin Slowey lasted long enough to get his first major league victory as the Minnesota Twins beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-5 Wednesday.
The Twins took advantage of a key error by shortstop Orlando Cabrera to stop a four-game losing streak. The Angels had won five in a row.
Luis Castillo's major league-record errorless streak for second basemen ended at 143 consecutive games. He missed a throw from Bartlett, the Minnesota shortstop, in the first inning.
Slowey (1-0) allowed five runs and 10 hits over five-plus innings in his second big league start. He left after Howie Kendrick hit a leadoff homer in the sixth that trimmed Minnesota's lead to 6-5.
Joe Nathan, the fifth Twins pitcher, closed for his 13th save in 14 chances.
John Lackey (9-4) gave up six runs in seven innings after being staked to a 4-0 lead.
Orioles 9, Mariners 5
SEATTLE (AP) - Jay Gibbons ended an 0-for-22 slide with two hits and started a five-run rally that helped Baltimore beat Seattle to stop a five-game losing streak.
Baltimore's bullpen, which failed to protect late leads the previous two nights, held on in the ninth with Chris Ray to end Seattle's four-game winning streak. Ray pitched for the first time since giving up a game-ending homer Sunday to the Los Angeles Angels' Vladimir Guerrero.
Daniel Cabrera (5-6) allowed four runs in the first two innings, then held the Mariners to two hits in his final six innings and won for the first time in five road starts this season.
Baltimore rallied from 4-0 down to go ahead in the fifth against Jarrod Washburn (5-5), who allowed five runs and nine hits in 4 2-3 innings.
