#Staturday: Tim Beckham Makes a Great First Impression

Tim Beckham and Jonathan Schoop high five.

Happy Staturday Birdland! After a not-so-wild trade deadline, the Orioles started winning again. It was fun and it produced some stats. Let’s get to em!

Before the deadline, the Orioles traded with the Tampa Bay Rays for Tim Beckham and he’s had a flaming hot start:

Tim Beckham recorded 10 hits in his first 15 at-bats.

After going 4-4 on Friday, Tim Beckham has 7 straight hits in as many at-bats.

Beckham has started his Orioles’ career with four straight multi-hit games, the most of any Oriole in 2017.

As the Orioles continue hitting the long ball, they approach an historic franchise mark:

On Friday, Manny hit the 9,997th home run in Orioles’ team history. They’re three away from 10,000.

If you were watching Thursday night’s game, you may have noticed a pretty epic play that started at the hot corner:

The Manny-Schoop-Davis triple play on Thursday was the second Orioles’ triple play in Camden Yards history.
