Pinch-hitter Eric Davis' sacrifice fly in the eighth inning lifted the Orioles over Texas, 1-0, Monday night, dropping the Rangers two games behind the Angels in the AL West. Baltimore has won six consecutive games, including three in a row from the Angels over the weekend. The Orioles are 6 1/2 games behind Boston in the wild-card hunt, but for the most part their role down the stretch will be that of a spoiler. Cal Ripken Jr.
