- The Texas Rangers are not the homer-happy club that they were during their glory years a few seasons ago, ranking fifth of 15 American League teams this year. But something about Camden Yards brings out that Texas power. On Tuesday the Rangers hit four homers for a second consecutive night to beat the Orioles, 8-6, before an announced 27,370. It was the seventh time since 2005 that the Rangers have homered at least four times in a game in Baltimore.
- In his fifth plate appearance Tuesday, Nelson Cruz hit a three-run homer to cap the Orioles' six-run eighth inning in an 8-3 win over the Rangers in front of an announced 31,542 at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
