Dave Trembley gave some credit to the Texas Rangers for busting out of short offensive slump to score 15 runs in the series finale. If it's any consolation, the Orioles still outscored them for the series, 25-16.
"(Ian) Kinsler and (Josh) Hamilton obviously are having great seasons and they kind of make it go for them."
Chris Waters struggled with his command and gave up six runs over four innings. He now has a major league ERA -- 4.50 -- which perfectly reflects one good outing and one bad one.
"Waters was a different pitcher today. A lot was up. In Anaheim, I don't think he there were four or five pitches above the knees, and today, I don't think there were more thann four below the knees."
Finally, Trembley wasn't going to heap the whole thing on shortstop Alex Cintron, who had a dismal afternoon.
"Obviously, there were some plays that shoulda, coulda, woulda...but you've got to make pitches and you've got to shut them down. That's probably one he'd like to do over...I'm not a negative person. I'm not going to take a shot at him. I've seen him have better days."
