August 22, 2007: The Texas Rangers set the MLB record for runs in a 30-3 win against the Baltimore Orioles.

Despite the crazy winning margin, Marlon Byrd, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and the rest of the Rangers didn't start off on fire were actually losing 3-0 after three innings. Then last-place Texas caught fire. It scored five runs in the fourth inning, nine in the sixth, 10 in the eighth and six in the ninth.

Baltimore allowed multiple hits to all but one player in the Rangers' lineup. Four players had 4 or more RBIs for Texas. The Orioles bullpen combined for a 54.00 ERA.

This was the first game of a doubleheader. In the second game, the Rangers won 9-7, to set a doubleheader record of 39 runs.
