Ryan Webb (3-1) worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the top of the 12th for the Orioles, who improved to 12-3 in extra innings.
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.
A potential pitching duel between Jered Weaver and Chris Tillman turned into a slugfest, as both former All-Stars left after the fifth inning with Baltimore leading 6-5.
