Twice as nice
Historic sweep for Rangers
It took a late rally to complete the sweep, but after the Rangers tallied three runs in the eighth they had sealed a historic doubleheader with a win in the nightcap. Texas scored 39 runs over the two games to break the all-time record for runs scored during a twin bill.

Nightcap ends rough day
Hoping to erase memories of a brutal opener, the O's rallied to take the lead in the seventh inning of Game 2. But the Rangers wouldn't have it, and a three-run rally spoiled the Orioles' hopes of a doubleheader split. The Orioles' pitching staff surrendered 39 runs over the twin bill.
