In the series finale, the Angels bounced back from two consecutive losses by defeating the Orioles 4-1.

Reid Detmers pitched five innings of one-run ball to help the Angels escape a season-opening sweep by defeating the Baltimore Orioles 4-1 on Sunday.

The Angels met following Saturday's 13-4 loss over Baltimore after being outscored 24-7 in their opening two games.

 After Detmers (1-0) quieted the Orioles, Los Angeles scored two runs in each of the first two innings.

It was Ron Washington's first major league win since 2014 with Texas. Angels hired Washington in November.

“That starting job that he gave us, we needed it very, very badly,” Washington recalled. He provided it to us.”

Taylor Ward's two-run homer opened the scoring, and Tyler Wells (0-1) kept the bases clean over six innings, but it was too late.

Detmers allowed two hits, seven strikeouts, and three walks. Soriano pitched three innings and Estévez threw a flawless ninth for his first save.

“It felt good,” Detmers remarked. Of course we needed it. Our last two games haven't been great."
