SI.com - MLB - Rangers first team in 110 years to score 30 runs

SI.com - MLB - Rangers first team in 110 years to score 30 runs:
"BALTIMORE (AP) -- Five runs in the fourth inning.

Nine runs in the sixth.

Ten in the eighth.

Six more in the ninth.

The Texas Rangers rounded the bases at a dizzying pace and became the first team in 110 years to score 30 runs in a game, setting an American League record Wednesday in a 30-3 rout of the Baltimore Orioles."
Two grand slams, three 3-run homers, and one solo homer -- and all the Texas offense was concentrated in four innings. That must have been a wild ride.

The hapless opening pitcher got the loss, since he stayed 5 innings, leaving the score 5-3. The other three pitchers allowed 25 runs between them.

Sheesh! This sounds like some softball games I've played in lately, coming out on the "3" side of the equation. :)

Or the typical K-State football game in the early 1980s -- With KSU on the '3' side.
