It was an up and down week for the Orioles but a couple of walk-offs spiced things up. Let’s get to the stats!

This week the Orioles extended a pretty insane streak:

The Orioles have won twelve consecutive extra-inning games at Camden Yards – a streak that started in September, 2015.

On Wednesday, Trey Mancini put on an incredible performance and made some history:

Trey Mancini is the youngest Oriole and 7th-youngest player in MLB history to hit two homers after entering the game as a pinch hitter.

Trey Mancini joined Jim Gentile, Mike Young, and Terry Crowley as the only Orioles to hit two home runs after entering the game as a pinch hitter.

As always, the Orioles are really good at hitting the long ball:

In 2017, the Orioles are tied with the Houston Astros and New York Yankees for recording the most four-home run games with six.
