#Staturday: O’s Finally Hit Some Triples

Baltimore Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy bats.

Happy Staturday Birdland! Another week of baseball, another avalanche of stats. Let’s get to em!

The Orioles & Nationals played in the annual “battle of the beltways” this week. The battle has been pretty lopsided:

Since 2012, the Orioles are 19-8 versus the Nationals. They haven’t lost a season series against the Nationals since 2007.

Friday night, Dylan Bundy had another solid outing, extending an impressive streak:

Dylan Bundy has pitched eight consecutive quality starts – the longest streak since Miguel Gonzalez did the same in 2013.

Speaking of streaks, Jonathan Schoop has one of his own:

On Friday, Jonathan Schoop went 1-4, extending his on-base to 26 games –  the longest streak since Adam Jones did the same in 2012.

The Orioles have a distant relationship with triples but on Friday they hit two:

J.J. Hardy and Caleb Joseph both hit triples against the Royals, ending the Orioles’ 53-game triple-less streak.
