On Tuesday the Orioles messed with Texas, but the Rangers wouldn’t have any of that on Wednesday.
Let’s not forget, this is the team that put up 30 on the board in Baltimore in 2006, so they have been known to smash the Orioles in the past.
Ian Kinsler alone could have defeated the Orioles on Tuesday. He went 6 for 6 and hit for the cycle. Kinsler is the first Ranger in history to get 6 hits in one game.
Everything went wrong for the Orioles on Tuesday. They allowed 7 unearned runs and committed 2 errors. Starting pitcher Mark Hendrickson couldn’t make it through the 4th inning and Radhames Liz gave up a grand slam on his first pitch back in the majors after being called up from AAA Norfolk.
I feel like I could pretty much sum this game up with that last part about Liz, but I’ll continue.
Former Orioles Kris Benson got the win, he gave up 4 earned runs in 6 innings of work.
Chad Moeller and Adam Jones hit homeruns.
The Orioles travel on Thursday to Boston where they play a four game series starting Friday night at 7:05 PM.
