The Baltimore Orioles (10-16) hit the road for Minnesota this weekend. Here's your news and notes ahead of the 3-game set.
Right fielder Steve Wilkerson hit his first MLB home Wednesday night, a solo shot to put Baltimore up 4-1. It proved to be the deciding run, as the White Sox scored only two more runs in the game.
John Means earned the win on his 25th birthday Wednesday, hurling five innings and allowing just one run on four hits and a walk, striking out six. Means is now 3-2 on the season.
Chris Davis missed out on Wednesday's win due to a personal matter. After a historically cold start, Davis is hitting .360 in his last nine games.
A pair of Orioles fans, Joe and Katie Demski, got married in their O's jerseys on Wednesday. Congrats to the lovely couple.
Eddie Rosario leads the major leagues with 10 home runs and is tied for third with 13 outfield assists defensively. His eight long-balls through 17 games marked the most in Twins history since Tony Oliva (1966, seven).
One of the hottest hitters in Major League Baseball is 25-year-old Jorge Polanco. Not only did the shortstop hit for the cycle already, but he's batting a cool .366 and took Justin Verlander deep recently.
