Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Markakis and Chris Davis went deep to help power the Baltimore Orioles to a 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.
Markakis extended his hitting streak to nine games after going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI, including what proved to be the game-winning single in the sixth inning. Former Ranger Nelson Cruz had three hits and scored twice and Adam Jones drove in a pair for Baltimore, winners in four straight on the heels of a four-game slide.
Bud Norris (4-5) got knocked around for five runs on six hits in five innings of work, but earned the win thanks to Baltimore's offense. Zach Britton worked around two hits in the ninth to nail down his fifth save.
Adrian Beltre produced all five Texas runs, homering twice in the Rangers' fourth defeat in their last five games. Beltre has three home runs in this series.
Nick Martinez (1-2) was touched for all six runs -- four earned -- on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings to absorb the loss.
