The O's were unable to take the series in Texas, as they were rocked 12-3 on Wednesday night.
Tommy Hunter allowed only a solo homer in the second inning before getting blasted in a nine-run fourth. Hunter (4-8) didn't record an out in that fateful frame, allowing seven runs on seven hits including a two-run shot and a grand slam. Kevin Gregg came on in relief and allowed another two-run blast, and suddenly a 1-1 tie ballgame was a 10-1 blowout...
Nick Markakis went 3-for-4 with a triple and drove in all three runs for the Birds.
Although they lost the series, the O's still went 3-3 on the road trip through Detroit and Texas, which was no small feat. The club rests on Thursday before hosting the Blue Jays for a three-game set starting Friday night. Zach Britton takes the mound for the O's.
