Benintendi’s Comeback

Before Sunday’s game Benintendi was struggling 1 for 9 in this series. He got one base hit in Saturday’s game which ended his 5 game no hit streak. Benintendi had 4 AB, 3 R, 4 H, and 3 RBI. He achieved his first multi-homer game, knocking two balls out of the park. He has three lifetime homeruns versus the Orioles, all taking place in Camden Yards.

Mookie Betts

Betts started off the game with the first at bat and achieved 4 AB, 2 R, 1 H, and 0 RBI.  Notably, Betts hit is 500th hit during the game, which is in this third year of playing. Betts proved to be a formidable opponent for the Oriole’s pitcher Chris Tillman, repeatedly dodging Tillman’s efforts to kick him off first.

You're looking at Mookie's 500th career hit. Congrats, @mookiebetts!

Speaking of Tillman….

Tillman had a rough day. A pitch in the sixth inning hit catcher Francisco Pena and ultimately cost the Orioles two runs. Tillman had a season-high four walks and the bases were loaded, showing Tillman’s struggle to return strong.
