Nick Markakis continued his fine sophomore campaign with five RBIs, leading the O's to a late comeback. Markakis smacked his 21st home run and later added a two-run double to help Baltimore overcome a shaky start from rookie righty Radhames Liz.
In the midst of the Rangers' ugly defeat, second-year second baseman Ian Kinsler joined the 20-20 club, socking his 20th home run to match his 22 stolen bases. Starter Edinson Volquez showed flashes of promise, but allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings.
