JOHN YDSTIE, host:

Good morning. I'm John Ydstie.

The Texas Rangers hit everything the Baltimore Orioles threw at them and scored 30 runs in last night's game. The last time a Major League Baseball team scored that many runs was 1897. The Rangers smashed two grand slams - one from Travis Metcalf, who had been called up from the minor leagues earlier in the day. The only positive for Orioles manager Dave Trembley was that he signed a contract extension just before the game.

It's MORNING EDITION.
