BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have a knack for winning in extra innings, and it has nothing to do with luck. Manny Machado homered leading off the 12th inning, and the Orioles survived a rocky outing from starter Chris Tillman in a 7-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. Baltimore is 12-3 in extra innings and has won seven straight. "To do that, youve got to have a good effort out of your bullpen -- and we did tonight," manager Buck Showalter said. Orioles relievers gave up one run and five hits over the final seven innings. After Ryan Webb (3-1) worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the 12th, Machado took care of business in the bottom half with his first career game-ending homer. Machado hit a 1-2 breaking ball from Cory Rasmus (2-1) into the seats in left field to end the back-and-forth duel between AL contenders. The Orioles were 16-2 in extra innings in 2012, and this is shaping up to be that kind of year. "We have good chemistry in the clubhouse like we did back then and obviously we have a good bullpen as well," Machado said. Adam Jones and Nick Markakis homered for Baltimore, playing its first home game since the All-Star break. Josh Hamilton homered and had three RBIs for the Angels, who have dropped eight of their last 11 against the Orioles. Los Angeles got a solid performance from its relievers, who allowed three hits over six-plus innings. "Our bullpen did a terrific job," manager Mike Scioscia said. "You cant ask much more from those guys. We couldnt get that one hit that would get the game on our terms." A potential pitching duel between Jered Weaver and Tillman turned into a slugfest, as both former All-Stars left after the fifth inning with Baltimore leading 6-5. Weaver gave up a season-high six earned runs and walked four. Tillman yielded five runs, three earned, and six hits -- including three doubles and a home run. After Hamilton delivered a run-scoring grounder in the top of the first, the Orioles scored twice in the bottom half. Jones drove an 0-2 fastball over the left-field wall -- giving him 20 home runs for a fourth straight season -- and J.J. Hardy added an RBI single. Los Angeles capitalized on a throwing error by Tillman to take a 3-2 lead in the second before Machado doubled in a run in the Orioles half. After Hank Conger hit a sacrifice fly for the Angels in the fourth, Weaver issued two walks in the bottom half and Markakis followed with a drive off the right-field foul pole to make it 6-4. Hamilton homered in the fifth and tied it in the seventh with an infield hit. TRAINING ROOM Angels: Left-hander C.J. Wilson (right ankle sprain) pitched 5 1-3 innings for Double-A Arkansas on Monday night in his first rehab start and could return soon. "There is definitely one scenario where it could be this weekend, but were not going to commit to anything," Scioscia said. Orioles: First baseman Chris Davis did not play after being sent home with a stomach virus. "He was sick all day (Monday) and didnt seem to be making a marked improvement," Showalter said. ON DECK Angels: Right-hander Garrett Richards (11-3) seeks to rebound after his seven-game winning streak ended last week against Detroit. In his only previous start against Baltimore, Richards allowed a career-high seven runs in 2012. Orioles: Kevin Gausman makes his first career start against the Angels as the Orioles seek their ninth win in 11 games at Camden Yards. WEAVERS WOES The Angels were 7-0 in Weavers previous seven starts, and it took a comeback for the right-hander to stay unbeaten since June 16. "Fastball was up for most of the time and I couldnt really figure out how to get it down," he said. "Every time I left it up they put good swings on it. Any time you get the ball up in this park its not going to work out too well."

But in 2014, the Whitecaps will have a new coach, a new look and less attitude, starting with Saturdays season-opener against the powerhouse New York Red Bulls at B.C. Place Stadium. Watch the Whitecaps vs. Red Bulls live on TSN tonight at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. "Were all looking ahead with a cautious optimism," Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi said before the team held its final pre-season practice Friday. The Whitecaps finished seventh in the Western Conference with a 13-12-9 record in 2013 after becoming the first Canadian team to make the playoffs the year before. New York, which features a star-studded lineup, finished first overall with a 17-9-8 mark. Carl Robinson, a former Whitecaps assistant coach, will try to excel in the top job after Martin Rennie was fired at the end of the last campaign. "Obviously, with a new coach coming in, theres going to be a transition, but hes had a full pre-season to work with a majority of the guys," said Lenarduzzi. "And then, getting the guys that weve added over the course of the pre-season, therell still be I would think a required time for players to gel and for the newer guys to get to know Carl and his coaching staff and their teammates." Robinson has brought in several new players from South America and Europe, including new designated player Pedro Morales, a Chilean midfielder who was signed earlier this week. "We dont want to put too many unrealistic expectations on him, but were hopeful that hes going to produce and well see results of that in goals and assists," said Lenarduzzi. "But ultimately what were looking for from him is to bring out the best in players around him." Other prominent newcomers include attacking Nicolas Mezquida and Sebastian Fernandez, who both hail from Uruguay, and Mattias Laba of Argentina, a designated player who was acquired from Toronto FC. Vancouvers acquisitions have paled in comparison to TFCs splashy off-season signings, but Lenarduzzi did not feel pressured to match them. "I dont think any team in the league feels the pressure to match $100 million spent on three players," he said. As a result of the changes, the Whitecaps lineup features players from 16 countries, who bring diverse skill levels, backgrounds and languages. "Football is a global sport," said Lenarduzzi. "The language barriers? I dont believe they are barriers. Obviously when you get on the field youd like to be able to communicate with your teammates. But really, if youre good players, your ability will do the talking for you." Lenarduzzi is hopeful that Robinson, 37, a former Welsh international player who toiled in England and in MLS with Toronto and New York, will be able to get his message across. Known as a strong communicator, Robinson developed close relationships with players in his assistants role and, according to Lenarduzzi, succeeded in getting them to accept what they sometimes did not like to hear about their play. "Now that hes the head coach, hes the guy where the buck stops," said Lenarduzzi. "So it wont be the same as it was the previous two years.dddddddddddd Itll be different. But Im encouraged that up until now hes maintained his willingness to communicate with the guys." Lenarduzzi also likes the fact that Robinson stresses a possession-oriented, attacking style of play while still requiring the club to display a disciplined defensive structure, and "puts a premium" on young players. "We havent kicked the ball in anger yet, so were not getting carried away," said Lenarduzzi. "We think weve got a good squad of players. But if he applies all of those things then I think weve got an opportunity to make the playoffs this year, which is really our objective." The quest for a post-season berth became more difficult following the departure of striker Camilo Sanvezzo — who led MLS with 22 goals last season — to Queretaro of the Mexican League. Camilo angered the club by donning the Mexican teams jersey while he was still a Whitecap and a transfer was eventually negotiated. "The hope is that two players or, more than likely, three players will help pick up that (scoring) slack," said Lenarduzzi. One likely source of more offence is striker Darren Mattocks, who had a disappointing sophomore season marred by injuries, inconsistent play and international absences that limited him to just three goals. Lenarduzzi also hopes to get "10-plus" goals from striker-midfielder Kekuta Manneh, a gifted 19-year-old scorer who was used sparingly in his rookie season but still found the net six times in only 764 minutes of action over 20 games. "What I dont think we want to do is heighten the expectations of Kekuta," said Lenarduzzi. "Hes a very good player, and he proved that late last season." Former Scottish international striker Kenny Miller will be expected to produce early as he plays on an unusual six-month contract that could see him leave the team in mid-season. "Kenny will need to do what he did the first half of last season and if thats the case, then certainly thats going to encourage us to keep him around," said Lenarduzzi. Striker Omar Salgado, 20, the teams first-ever MLS draft choice who has missed most of the past two seasons with foot injuries, could also help make up for Camilos absence, depending on how much playing time he can earn after his long layoff. Ultimately, Vancouvers scoring prowess could hinge on Robinson, also a former Red Bulls assistant coach, who was not managements first choice to replace Rennie. "Im excited. I really am," Robinson told reporters this week. "But Im trying to keep a calm head on my shoulders in (the dressing room) and in front of the guys." Notes: The Whitecaps loaned five players, including seventh-overall 2014 draft pick Andre Lewis, to the second-tier Charleston Battery on Friday. Lenarduzzi said the Whitecaps made the move to ensure that Lewis, a 19-year-old midfielder from Spanish Town, Jamaica, gets plenty of playing time. Strikers Mamadou Diouf and Marlon Ramirez, midfielder Aminu Abdallah and defender Jackson Farmer were also sent to Charleston. … Vancouver beat New York in their lone meeting last season. The Whitecaps are unbeaten (1-0-2) against the Red Bulls in three all-time games.
