Orioles get away from home, win 5-2 at Texas

Stewart homered while Jorge López struck out eight in five innings, leading the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.

A week after getting no-hit by San Diego Padres right-hander Joe Musgrove, the Rangers didn’t have a hit off López (1-2) until David Dahl and Nick Solak started the fifth with back-to-back homers.

Baltimore pitchers combined for 15 strikeouts while the Rangers, who were coming off three wins in a row at defending American League champion Tampa Bay, had only four hits.

It was Baltimore's first game at the $1.2 billion Globe Life Field, where the retractable roof was closed on a night when it was 59 degrees and still misty after raining throughout the day.

Orioles: LF Austin Hays (right hamstring strain) was set to play games at the team's alternate site Friday and Saturday.

Hyde said the Orioles will see how Hays recovers from those, and that he could be activated from the injured list as early as Sunday for the series finale in Texas, or Tuesday in Miami.
