ARLINGTON, Texas -- Erik Bedard struck out 15 to tie a Baltimore franchise record and allowed two hits in his first career shutout in the Orioles' 3-to-0 win over Texas.
Bedard is 7-and-4. He faced the minimum 27 hitters. Desi
Relaford singled with one out in the first and Sammy Sosa singled
leading off the eighth. But Bedard induced double-play grounders to
erase each runner.
Jay Gibbons homered and Brandon Fahey had an R-B-I single in the
ninth inning for Baltimore, which posted its first shutout of the
