BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Tonight, August 19, the Baltimore Orioles became the first team in MLB history to homer four times before recording an out.
That data goes all the way back to 1900, per STATS LLC.
Center fielder Adam Jones started it off with a home run into left field in the bottom of the first.
By the end of the first inning, the Orioles were up 5-1 thanks to third baseman Manny Machado hitting a home run over a 410-foot sign in center field, first baseman Chris Davis smacking his 28th home run of the year, and Mark Trumbo notching his 36th home run.
The last time the Orioles had back-to-back-to-back home runs was in August of 2014 with, Delmon Young, J.J. Hardy and Chris Davis.
