Thirty little secret
Rangers break record
An early three-run hole became a distant memory as Texas took the lead in the fourth. But it was a nine-run sixth inning that sealed the win. Marlon Byrd and Travis Metcalf both hit grand slams as the Rangers scored an AL-Record 30 runs to take the opener of Wednesday's twin bill.

Series at a glance:
'Pen falls apart in sixth
Things started off well for the O's. Baltimore had a three-run lead by the third inning, but starter Daniel Cabrera and the bullpen surrendered 30 unanswered runs. The Rangers put up crooked numbers in the fourth, sixth, eighth and ninth as the Orioles, victims of the worst defeat in club history, were left to sit back and wait for the nightcap to Wednesday's doubleheader.
