(Photo by Kevin Sullivan, Orange County Register/SCNG)ExpandANAHEIM — At one point Thursday, it seemed the Angels had an embarrassment of riches within their grasp. Albert Pujols was one hit away from 3,000 for his Hall of Fame career, Mike Trout was halfway to hitting for the cycle and Jaime Barria flirted with a no-hitter.None of the three came to pass, though.Pujols delivered a two-run double for the 2,999th hit of his career, sparking the Angels to a 12-3 victory and a three-game sweep of the hapless Baltimore Orioles. Trout tripled, singled and scored two runs as the Angels continued their assault on Orioles pitching.Barria worked 5-1/3 no-hit innings before faltering in the sixth. He gave up two runs and four hits with two strikeouts and two walks in only his third major league start, after an April 11 victory over the Texas Rangers and a loss to the San Francisco Giants on April 22. Castro hit Pujols with a pitch in the fourth inning. Pujols then fouled out in the sixth and sent a lazy fly to right to end the eighth and send most of the fans streaming toward the exits.Angels fans stood and roared during each of Pujols’ at-bats after his second-inning double, booing when he was hit and groaning when he fouled out and flied out. Mostly, they sat and cheered as the Angels completed their demolition of the Orioles, who are 8-23, last in the American League East.“Pretty special,” Pujols said of the fans’ reaction. “We have great fans here. They support every player, not just myself. They’re aware of the history that’s about to happen. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen tonight. I had an opportunity to make it happen here. … It wasn’t meant to be this week.“One of these days we’re all going to celebrate it.”This one was over early.Tillman didn’t miss many bats during a first inning in which nine Angels came to bat and he threw 33 pitches. The Angels scored five runs as six of their first seven hitters reached base. Pujols was the lone out before Tillman retired Kole Calhoun and Martin Maldonado on flyouts.The Angels added three more runs in the second.Barria took an 8-0 lead after two innings and ran with it. The 21-year-old right-hander had given up only two walks entering the sixth inning. A third batter, Pedro Alvarez, reached on Pujols’ fielding error with two outs in the fifth. But that was it. The evening promised history, but a crowd of 35,879 witnessed just another Angels victory.It was hardly routine, however.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

When it happens, perhaps as soon as Friday night against the Mariners in Seattle, he’ll join an elite club of Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Alex Rodriguez.“It’s going to happen one day,” Pujols said. “The most important thing was that we won the game here today. It would have been awesome for it to happen, but we played great, we swung the bats great. It’s going to happen one of these days. It’s not about me, it’s about our team.“It’s great. Don’t get me wrong.”center_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Barria then ran out of gas in the sixth. He gave up a one-out single to Trey Mancini that ended his no-hit bid before giving up run-scoring singles to Manny Machado and Chris Davis as the Orioles trimmed the Angels’ lead to 12-2. Blake Parker relieved Barria to start the seventh.“He has a lot of poise for a young pitcher and a young person,” Manager Mike Scioscia said of Barria. “He still has a lot of growth. He’s seeing what the beast is, major-league ballparks, major-league hitters, and he’s making adjustments.”Justin Upton had three hits and Shohei Ohtani and Andrelton Simmons had two apiece as the Angels hammered out 15 hits. The Angels scored 27 runs in 12 games before the Orioles’ arrival at the Big A, but had 25 during their three-game sweep of Baltimore.Next: Seattle and the start of a three-game series Friday against the Mariners.“We’re all waiting for that one hit and, hopefully, we’re going to get it tomorrow,” Scioscia said.
