A Beat-Down For The Ages

Whoda thunk it? This year’s Texas Rangers – at one time on course to be one of the suckingest teams in the Rangers sucky history – pulled a fast one and found its way into the record books yesterday. And in a good way. Really.

The Rangers set a modern-era record for most runs scored by one team in a game with a 30-3 cudgeling of the Baltimore Orioles. They easily trumped the previous club record, also set against the Orioles, of 26 runs in a 1996 contest. No team had scored 30 runs since 1897, when the Chicago Colts scored 36 against the Louisville Colonels on June 29, 1897.

In spite of this, the Rangers still suck.

Cudgeling is an amazing word. Thanks for introducing me to that one.

Don't forget the former Jayhawk Travis Metcalf had one of the grand slams in the beatdown. Rock Chalk Travis Hawk
