    buying vs to buy

    "In order to please his girlfriend, Victor maxed out his credit card (A. buying B. to buy) a large number of gifts for her at SOGO Department Store in Taipei."

    In the parenthesis above, which is correct, A or B? I think A is the better answer, but B also sounds correct to me, but I am not sure. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thank you.
