Rangers Beat Orioles 30-3

The Texas Rangers trailed the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 going into the top of the fourth inning in the first game of their doubleheader Wednesday. They then scored 30 unanswered runs to defeat Baltimore by the amazing score of 30-3. The 30 runs scored by Texas, is the most ever in the history of the American League which was formed in 1901. It is the first time 30 or more runs were scored in a MLB game since 1897, as the Chicago Colts, who eventually became the Cubs beat the Louisville Colonels 36-7 in a National League game. Texas scored five in the fourth, 9 in the sixth, 10 in the eighth, and 6 in the ninth. The Rangers also won the second game of the doubleheader 9-7 breaking a 70 year old American League record held by the Detroit Tigers who scored 36 runs in a double header in 1937.
