CBSSports.com wire reports

BALTIMORE -- Vicente Padilla emerged from his second straight ineffective start for the Texas Rangers with a sore collarbone, a bruised right thumb and an inflated ERA.

Freddie Bynum had three RBI after being added to the lineup shortly before game time, and the Baltimore Orioles roughed up Padilla in a 10-4 win Friday.

Adam Jones and Brandon Fahey both drove in two runs and scored twice for the Orioles, who built an 8-1 lead in the third inning. It was a stark contrast to the last time Texas visited Baltimore, when the Rangers beat the Orioles 30-3 and 9-7 in a doubleheader sweep on Aug. 22.

Padilla (10-5) allowed a career-high tying eight runs and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. In his previous start, the right-hander yielded seven runs in a loss to Philadelphia. After giving up at least seven runs in two straight starts for the first time in his career, his ERA has jumped from 3.74 to 4.70.

He was pulled during a four-run third inning with a bruised thumb. X-rays were negative, but Padilla was also concerned about a collarbone injury he said could force him to miss his next start.

"Maybe the thumb will be fine but not the collarbone," he said through an interpreter. "My last outing I felt that already but I was trying to do as much as I can."

Asked if he expected to pitch Wednesday against the Los Angeles Angels, Padilla replied, "This thing is bothering me. Not only the thumb, it was my problem to come out of the game, but I was feeling that pain over in my neck. I'm not sure if I'm done with that and be able to throw in my next outing on five days' rest."

But Rangers manager Ron Washington said, "He should be able to make his next start. He'll have tomorrow off and start throwing on the next day. We'll see how he goes."

Bynum was a late replacement for Brian Roberts, who was scratched after experiencing flulike symptoms. Bynum hit a two-run single in the third inning and drove in a run with a grounder in the eighth.

"I told him when I made the switch, 'Make the most of the opportunity. Go for it.' And he did today," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said. "He played with some energy. He gave us a real lift."

Bynum, who came in batting .192, said, "It just shows how crazy the game is. I think my big problem has been thinking too much. I just cleared my mind, took a big breath, relaxed and went out there and played ball."

The victory moved Baltimore percentage points ahead of the New York Yankees into third place in the AL East.

Milton Bradley went 2-for-4 with three RBI for Texas, and Ian Kinsler had two singles to extend his hitting streak to 16 games.

But the hard-hitting Rangers simply couldn't overcome a prolific Baltimore attack that produced six doubles and was 6-for-13 with runners in scoring position.

"We hit with men on base. That was it," Trembley said. "You've got to do it, especially early in the game. When you get scoring opportunities with less than two outs, you've got to cash them in, and we stayed away from striking out with guys on base."

Jeremy Guthrie (5-7) permitted four runs and eight hits in 6 1/3 innings for Baltimore.

"He threw a lot of first-pitch strikes early," Trembley said, "and what we haven't done collectively as a team, he did. After we scored, he put shutdown innings up there for us, and I think that was big, especially against a club like Texas that is so good offensively."

After Bradley hit an RBI double in the first inning, Nick Markakis doubled and scored on a single by Aubrey Huff in the bottom half. Baltimore made it 4-1 in the second on a two-run double by Fahey and a run-scoring single by Markakis.

The Orioles pulled away in the third. Luke Scott hit a one-out double, Melvin Mora walked and Kevin Millar singled in a run before Jones hit a run-scoring grounder. Fahey then doubled, and Bynum chased Padilla with a two-run single.

Texas closed to 8-4 in the seventh. After Kinsler hit an RBI single, Ryan Bukvich entered and gave up a two-run single to Bradley.

But Jones singled in a run in the eighth before Bynum concluded the scoring with a run-scoring grounder.


Washington said Saturday's scheduled starter, Eric Hurley, would be held out because of a hamstring injury. He will be replaced by Scott Feldman (2-3). ... Bradley has 26 RBI in his last 24 starts. ... Jim Johnson, who pitched a scoreless eighth for Baltimore, has a microscopic 0.84 ERA in his last 17 games.
