ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Mark Trumbo hit two of Baltimore's four home runs in a nine-run seventh inning. and the Orioles beat the Texas Rangers 11-5 on Friday night.

The Orioles were still down 5-3 after Trumbo's two-run homer chased Martin Perez with no outs in the seventh. They went ahead to stay when Jonathan Schoop and Nolan Reimold hit back-to-back homers off Tom Wilhelmsen (1-1), and Trumbo added a three-run shot off a second reliever later in the inning.

Trumbo is the first Baltimore batter ever with two homers in the same inning, and first in the majors since Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion against Houston on July 26, 2013, according to STATS.

Schoop homered again in the eighth, a solo shot that was his third of the season and gave him his third career game with multiple homers.
