It's not whether you win or lose, but how much you lose by in the game

Ouch, now in the annals of sports this could be a rather hard one to live down let alone expunge from the record books.

The Texas Ranges went into baseball's record books on Wednesday night scoring thirty runs for the first time in 110 years, a record that will be kept as the modern era's unholy grail for embarrassment.

The unfortunate victims of the Rangers day of history were the Baltimore Orioles, who could only muster up three runs to the Rangers 30 on the way to their date with destiny. Though one suspects that they can take a little solace in the knowledge that they had a 3-0 lead heading into the fourth before the roof caved in.

The game was the opening match of a double header scheduled for Camden Yards Park on Wednesday, the night cap didn't go much better for the Orioles who lost 9-7, but who at least kept things close in the second game.

Ironically, the game one blow out came just after the Orioles announced that manager Dave Trembley would return for the 2008 season.

Perhaps a decision he might be having a few second thoughts about, right about now.
