TODAY'S WRAPS: August 21, 2007
The pitcher of record
Bats stymied by Oriole ace
Starter Vicente Padilla allowed three runs in the first inning, and the game may as well have been over. Orioles ace Erik Bedard kept the Rangers' offense at bay in dominant fashion, striking out 11 and not allowing a runner past second base until the seventh inning. By the time Texas broke through, its loss was all but assured.
