BALTIMORE —After staging a dazzling long-ball performance in the opener of a
doubleheader, the Baltimore Orioles were victimized in similar fashion by the
hottest hitter in the game. William Moore Womens Jersey . Josh Hamilton
hit his major league-leading 15th homer, Derek Holland pitched six innings of
four-hit ball, and the Texas Rangers beat Baltimore 7-3 on Thursday night for a
doubleheader split. In the first game, the Orioles set an AL record by hitting
home runs in their first three at-bats and launched five in all against
Colby Lewis in a 6-5 victory. Hamilton entered the doubleheader coming off a
four-homer game and had five home runs in his previous six at-bats. After going
1 for 4 with a single and two strikeouts in the first game, he resumed his
assault on Baltimore pitching by hitting a two-run, first-inning shot off former
Rangers right-hander Tommy Hunter (2-2). The drive travelled an estimated 442
feet and was the 60th in the 21-year history of Camden Yards to land on Eutaw
Street, far beyond the right-field scoreboard. Asked if Hamilton hit a good
pitch, Hunter replied, “He hit a baseball. The dudes on fire. What do you want
me to say?” Hamilton went 1 for 4 in the nightcap, dropping his batting average
to .395 but increasing his major league-leading RBI total to 38. In the
four-game series he went 8 for 18 with six homers and 12 RBIs. “I was pretty
happy I had a good series,” the slugger said. “But the series is over with now
and we have to go home and think about (facing Los Angeles). It feels like weve
only been home 12 or 14 days since we started spring training.” Texas went 5-5
on a 10-game swing through Toronto, Cleveland and Baltimore. The Orioles wont
see Hamilton again until August, but now theyve got to face the Tampa Bay Rays
in a three-game set that begins Friday night. “Theres good players coming in
behind him,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “Tampas a perennial playoff
team. Its playing at this level. Theres another challenge right behind it.”
After Hamilton put Texas in front, the Orioles took advantage of three Texas
errors to go up 3-2 in the second inning. But the Rangers regained the lead in
the fifth when Nelson Cruz doubled, Mike Napoli tripled and Elvis Andrus
delivered a two-out RBI single. Texas pulled away with a three-run seventh,
scoring twice on grounders after Hamilton received an intentional walk. Holland
(3-2) allowed three runs, none earned, to earn his first win in four starts
since April 18. Recalled from Triple-A Norfolk before the game, Hunter gave up
four runs and five hits in six innings. He struck out seven. The teams were
rained out Wednesday night, setting up the twin bill. Texas has gone 13 straight
doubleheaders since May 2007 without being swept. In the first game,
Ryan Flaherty, J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis opened the bottom of the first
inning with homers to give Baltimore a lead it did not relinquish. The previous
team to homer in its first three at-bats was the Milwaukee Brewers on Sept. 9,
2007. Hardy also was the middle man in that spree. Milwaukee was the third major
league team to accomplish the feat, all from the NL. After the three consecutive
home runs, Lewis retired his next 18 batters before Adam Jones homered leading
off the seventh to make it 4-1. Lewis walked Matt Wieters, and Wilson Betemit
hit a drive to right for a 6-1 lead. The five home runs yielded by Lewis (3-2)
were a career high. They also were the only hits he allowed over seven innings,
and he also set a career high with 12 strikeouts. That made him the first
pitcher since 1918 to give up five home runs and have at least 10 strikeouts in
the same game. “I cant justify that game,” Lewis said. “It seemed like one of
those days where you have really good stuff and then you miss your spot or
something and its just not a hit, its a homer. You cant really look at it any
other way. It was just kind of weird game.” Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen (3-0)
gave up two runs and six hits in 7 2-3 innings, striking out five and walking
one. The 26-year-old Taiwan native has allowed two runs or fewer in five of six
starts and has a 2.68 ERA in his rookie season. After Chen left in the eighth,
Adrian Beltre hit an RBI single to make it 6-2. Pinch-hitter David Murphy added
a three-run homer in the ninth off Jim Johnson, who got three outs for his ninth
save. With Chen leading the way, the Orioles snapped a seven-game losing streak
against the Rangers. Texas won the first two games of the series 14-3 and 10-3
and outscored Baltimore 70-18 during its seven-game run. NOTES: The prior time
Baltimore hit five homers in a game was June 30, 2010, against Oakland. ...
Andrus had hits in both games and has a 10-game run. He has reached base by hit
or walk in 28 straight games. ... Baltimore put OF Endy Chavez (oblique) on the
15-day disabled list to make room for Hunter. ... Orioles C Luis Exposito got
his first major league hit … The Rangers next face former teammate C.J. Wilson
and the Angels at home Friday. Julio Jones Falcons Jersey . —Green Bay
Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has had surgery to repair the torn abdominal
muscle that has sidelined him for much of the season. Roddy White Womens Jersey . Toronto (2-10-4)
and Philadelphia (4-9-2) have the worst records in MLS. But both teams have
shown signs of life since changes were made on the sidelines, with Paul Mariner
taking over in Toronto and John Hackworth taking charge in Philadelphia. http://www.thefalconsfans.com/tony-gonzalez-jerseys

Winnipeg meets the Montreal Alouettes this Friday.OTTAWA—Canada will get a
chance to make up for its stunning defeat to Italy the last time the World
Baseball Classic was held. Canada will open its 2013 Classic schedule against
the Italians on Match 8 in Scottsdale, Ariz. Canada failed to advance out of the
first round in the first two Classics, suffering a shock 6-2 defeat to Italy in
Toronto the last time the tournament was held in 2009. In the inaugural 2006
tournament Canada upset a star-studded American team 8-6 in the group stage, but
failed to advance after a 9-1 loss to Mexico. Canadas other first round games
will take place at Chase Field in Phoenix on March 9 against Mexico and March 10
against the United Staates. Roddy White Elite Jersey. At the completion
of the first round, the top two teams in each pool will advance to the second
round. First-baseman Justin Morneau of the Minnesota Twins and third-baseman
Brett Lawrie of the Toronto Blue Jays have been named to Canadas provisional
roster. The remainder of Canadas provisional roster will be announced in
January. “The popularity of baseball is growing in Canada, and Im looking
forward to playing in the World Baseball Classic again,” said Morneau, a native
of New Westminster, B.C. “Theres something special about representing everyone
back home, and proving that Canadian baseball is among the worlds best.” ’ ’ ’
