Congrats to Dave Trembley!!!!!

On the day the Baltimore Orioles committed to 2008 with former interim manager Dave Trembley, his pitching staff gave up the modern day (after 1900) record 30 runs to the Texas Rangers in the first game of a doubleheader. The previous record was 29 by the 1950 Red Sox and the 1955 Chicago White Sox. Texas scored 5 in the 4th, 9 in the 6th, 10 in the 8th, and a 6 spot in the top of the 9th. To go along with the 30 runs, the Rangers banged out 29 hits.

Jarrod Saltalamachia lead the charge going 4-6 with 2 homers, 5 runs and 7 RBI. Former Red Sox farmhand David Murphy was 5-7, 5 runs and 2 RBI. Ramon Vazquez was 4-6, 4 runs and 7 RBI. If you are scoring at home, that is 13-19, 16 RBIs, and 14 runs from your 7, 8, and 9 hitters.

Kason Gabbard went 6 innings, as he scattered 7 hits to pick up his 6th victory of the season.
