Rangers 15, Orioles 7
Marlon Byrd's season-high four hits pulled his average to .286. (Gail Burton/AP)
Josh Hamilton's three-run homer with no outs in the first said loudly and clearly that this was going to be Texas' offensive resurgence. The Rangers had 20 hits -- five by Ian Kinsler, who homered for the first time since July 5. Marlon Byrd was 4-for-6 with a three-run homer.
