Even if you’re not a Rangers fan, you’ll want to hear about this. The Texas Rangers rolled over the Orioles today, and the final score was 30-3. No, you’re eyes aren’t deceiving you. The Rangers scored 30 runs! So much for the 10 run rule!
No team has scored that many runs in a single game since 1897. This is definitely one for the books.

I was checking scores on my pocket PC and thought “Texas 30, Baltimore 3” had to have been a preseason NFL game accidentally listed among the MLB.
Watching Baseball Tonight and Sportscenter on ESPN eliminated my confusion.
Poor Michael Young, one of only 2 players without an RBI. I’m guessing he’ll get sent down to the minors now.
