Rangers love to score

The Texas Rangers rounded the bases 30 times to became the first team in 110 years to score 30 runs in a game, setting an American League record Wednesday in a 30-3 rout of the Baltimore Orioles. Baltimore had openned up an early 3-0 lead, and where then faced with 30 unanswered from the Rangers bats. The 30 runs scored are the fourth most in major league history. The Chicago Colts (now the Cubs) defeated the Louisville Royals, 36-7, in 1897. The Rangers became only the second team in 50 years to have four players total four or more RBIs in the same game.

You have to wonder of Rick Dempsey loved all of the abuse his Orioles took? I am not saying the orange-birds got killed, but we have seen more life out of seagulls after a date with Dave Winfield.
