Rangers score sixth in seventh inning, beat Orioles 8-4

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Mitch Moreland's go-ahead double off the right-field fence and Rougned Odor's two-run single highlighted a six-run seventh inning, leading the Texas Rangers to an 8-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night.

Delino DeShields and Nomar Mazara each had three hits for the Rangers. Mazara, promoted from Triple-A Round Rock last week, has two three-hit games in seven starts.

Keone Kela (1-0), who turned 23 on Saturday, worked a scoreless seventh inning in relief, striking out two and walking one.

The Rangers' big seventh inning helped them overcome solo home runs by Manny Machado, Adam Jones and Chris Davis, who increased the Orioles' major league-leading homer total to 23.

A.J. McFarland (0-1) took the loss after retiring only one of the four batters he faced in relief of starter Yovani Gallardo.
