Orioles hit 4 HRs, beat Rangers 9-7 to complete 4-game sweep
BALTIMORE (AP) - Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones both homered and drove in three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat Cole Hamels and the Texas Rangers 9-7 on Thursday night to complete a four-game sweep.
Mark Trumbo and Chris Davis also went deep for the Orioles, who trailed 5-1 in the fifth inning before coming back to hand Hamels (4-1) his first loss in 10 starts this season.
Baltimore hit 10 home runs in the series and outscored Texas 34-11.
The Orioles' four-game winning streak is their longest since a six-game run in early May, and it puts them within three games of .500 (46-49) for the first time since July 4.
Miguel Castro (2-1) worked the sixth for Baltimore after starter Wade Miley allowed five runs over five innings.
