Before a doubleheader with the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards, the Orioles remove the interim label from Trembley's title and officially announce that he will return as manager in 2008. The Orioles lose both games to the Rangers, including a 30-3 defeat in the first game. The 30 runs scored by Texas are the most allowed in a major league game since June 29, 1897, when the Chicago Colts beat the Louisville Colonels, 36-7. "It's been a long day today," Trembley said. "Whatever we threw, they hit it. They say hitting's contagious, and that certainly was the case in the first game. I've never seen anything like it."
