The Houston Astros set a major league record for strikeouts over a three-game series while completing a series sweep of the Baltimore Orioles with a 4-2 victory on Thursday night at Minute Maid Park.

Before discussing the strikeouts, Ghiroli commented on Hyun Soo Kim finally adjusting and getting a groove going on the field. She said, “He had one of their better at bats last night, for a second there I thought he was going to hit the ball out and that’s a pretty hard park to do it in…it was a good at bat and it kind of stands out because, one, it wasn’t a strike out and two, it came from Kim and it wasn’t a weak chopper. I think he’s becoming the guy they hoped he would be.”
The Orioles are moving on from their loss in Houston to take on Cleveland, but the frustration in the clubhouse was palpable. “Yeah, hopefully they can reset a little bit here. It’s remarkable, guys. They set the major league record for strikeouts in the third inning last night…but this is kind of the worst fear,” said Ghiroli.READ MORE: COVID Outbreaks At Baltimore-Area Schools Raises Concerns For Parents
