Rangers Vs. Orioles Final Score: Baltimore Takes Game 2 Over Texas With 5-3 Victory

The Texas Rangers came up just short in their bid to win a fourth consecutive game on Tuesday night in Arlington, after a strong outing from Baltimore righty Chris Tillman helped lead the Orioles to a 5-3 victory.

Rangers starter Scott Feldman was chased from the game after wrapping up the fifth. He gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits, in a start that he'll most likely want to erase with a strong performance next time out. Feldman did manage to throw 64% of his pitches for strikes (64 of 100) on the day, but fell to 6-9 with the loss and was much less impressive than his counterpart Tillman (6.2 IP, 3 ER, 7 K) throughout the game.

The sole offensive production of the day came from two separate Texas blasts, a solo home run from Ian Kinsler in the third inning and a two-run bomb from catcher Geovany Soto in the seventh. Kinsler's shot, which came with two outs in the frame, represented his 14th long-ball of the season and 137th of his career.

Fully aware of the danger that Baltimore's offense presents now more than ever, lefty Derek Holland will take the mound Wednesday to close out the series hoping to get the Rangers back into the win column.
