45-50 - Rangers find nothing charming in Charm City sweep

Texas blows a 5-1 lead, gets sweep, sees losing streak reach five straight after 9-7 loss

MLB: Texas Rangers at Baltimore Orioles Patrick McDermott-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s face it, if the Rangers can’t win a game they’re leading 5-1 with Cole Hamels coming off the third longest scoreless innings streak of his career, it might not be the year.

Player of the Game: Mike Napoli hit a two-out, three-run home run that made the game 5-1 and things were good...for a brief moment in time.

Up Next: Yu Darvish and the Rangers take on Alex Cobb and the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg. It could be Yu Darvish’s final start as a Texas Ranger.
