The Rangers haven't found themselves trailing much at the end of innings this season -- it had only happened four times before today's doubleheader in Baltimore.
But early home runs by the Orioles' Nick Markakis and Mark Reynolds off a shaky Colby Lewis -- paired with an error by Mike Napoli at first -- have contributed to Texas' 5-0 hole after three. That's the Rangers' biggest deficit of the young season.
Markakis' shot went about 350 feet and just cleared the right-field pole. Reynolds' was a three-run homer.
Lewis has struggled with control, leaving the two home run balls up high in the zone. Jones' single came on a 3-2 count.
The Rangers do not have a hit off Weatherford's Zach Britton through three innings.
