Recap: Texas vs. Baltimore

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Alex Rios drove in the eventual winning run in the seventh inning as the Texas Rangers grabbed an 8-6 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the finale of a three-game series.

Michael Choice hit a two-run homer and Mitch Moreland drove in two runs for the Rangers, who had dropped four of five coming into the game.

Texas starter Colby Lewis was tagged for five runs on seven hits in just five innings of work. Robbie Ross Jr. (2-4) pitched two flawless innings to get the win.

Adam Jones hit a solo home run and drove in three for the Orioles, who had a four-game winning streak broken, while Nick Markakis added a two-run shot.

Chris Tillman was chased from the game in the second inning after allowing five runs on six hits. Brian Matusz (2-2) allowed two unearned runs in the seventh to take the loss.

With the score tied at 5-5 in the seventh, the Rangers' Rougned Odor reached on an infield single and took second when J.J. Hardy's throw to first was off. Odor advanced to third on a Shin-Soo Choo groundout, then scored on another error by Hardy on an Elvis Andrus grounder.

Later in the frame, RBI singles from Rios and Chris Gimenez made it an 8-5 game.

Jones' homer to start the eighth got the Orioles closer, but Tanner Scheppers got out of the inning without any more damage.

Joakim Soria then pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 12th save of the season.

Moreland singled home two runs in the first inning, then the Rangers added three more in the second.
