Texas Rangers Score 30 Runs against Orioles

#1
Did anyone see this game? I got a call from my Dad around 8:30 telling me to turn on ESPN News and check out the score of this game. It was the most runs scored by a team in 110 years, and 2 players each had 2 hrs, a grand slam, and 7 RBI. Fucking ridiculous.

• Summary: After looking at the score, it's hard to beleive the Orioles led this game 3-0 at one point. The Rangers' 30 runs sets a modern MLB record, surpassing the mark of 29 runs that were scored by the Red Sox (June 8, 1950) and White Sox (April 23, 1955). It's the second-most runs all-time as the Chicago Colts (now the Cubs) scored 36 against the Louisville Colonels on June 29, 1897. Jarrod Saltalamacchia led the Rangers' charge, going 4-for-6 with two homers, five runs and seven RBIs.

• Home run heroes: Ramon Vazquez had two homers, while Travis Metcalf and Marlon Byrd both hit grand slams.

• Anyone got the Ravens' number?: The Baltimore Ravens, who play across the parking lot from the Orioles, haven't allowed 30 points since Week 12 in 2005.

• More scoring notes: The Rangers are the first team with four players (Metcalf, Byrd, Saltalamacchia, Vazquez) with four RBIs since the Phillies on May 17, 1979 (Rose, Maddux, Schmidt, Boone). This is the sixth time that a team has scored 9+ runs in two innings.

His name is Jarrod Saltalamacchia. He is only 22 years old. I am friends with his other brother, who had 2 years in the minor leagues with the Braves.
