Rua's HR in 7th leads Rangers to 5-4 win over Orioles

BALTIMORE (AP) — Ryan Rua has struggled over his young career as a pinch hitter for the Texas Rangers.
However, he made the most of the opportunity against the free-falling Baltimore Orioles.
Rua had a tiebreaking, pinch-hit three-run homer in the seventh inning and the Rangers held on to beat the Orioles 5-4 Friday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
“It was a situation where we just felt if we had runners on base we were going to go to Rua to give us an opportunity to drive some runs in,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. “I’m not real sure if he’s had a pinch hit. I know he’s had some attempts and hadn’t really come through. But to get a big one in that situation was huge for us.
