Rangers avoid sweep with 8-6 win over Orioles

Rougned Odor had a leadoff single in the seventh and scored the tiebreaking run with the help of two errors by Baltimore Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy as the Texas Rangers avoided a three-game sweep with an 8-6 win Thursday night.

The Rangers blew an early 5-0 lead, but their three-run seventh started when No. 9 batter Odor had an infield single off reliever Brian Matusz (2-2) and moved up on throwing error by Hardy.

Odor came home when Hardy misplayed a grounder hit by Elvis Andrus to make it 6-5. Alex Rios and Chris Jimenez then added consecutive RBI singles off Preston Guilmet, the fifth Baltimore pitcher.

Hardy, an All-Star for the second time last season, also had a throwing error in the fourth for the first three-error game in his career.
