BALTIMORE (CV) - Bishop Vann's Texas Rangers responded to a third inning 3-0 deficit by annihilating Cardinal Keeler's Baltimore Orioles with 30 (yes, THIRTY) unanswered runs for a 30-3 victory this evening. Texas scored five runs in the 4th inning, nine in the 6th, ten in the 8th, and six in the 9th to finish off the Orioles - in Camden Yards!
The Rangers are the first team to score 30 runs since the Cubs scored 36 runs 110 years ago. On June 28, 1897, the Cubs beat Louisville 36-7. That was a National League game. The Rangers now hold the American League record.
To add to the Orioles' woes, that was just the first game of a twi-night doubleheader. As I write this, the Rangers are leading 3-1 in the bottom of the 3rd inning. (UPDATE: The Rangers won the second game as well - 9-7)
And I thought my daughter's 28-14 win in all-star softball action was nuts!
