As the baseball world should know by now, Orioles batters welcome the challenge of facing the fire-balling Chapman.
If you want an odd baseball finish, Urias is your man. His prior walk-off heroics featured a fielders choice to defeat the Washington Nationals on July 25, 2001. That came after the aforementioned walk-off against the Seattle Mariners on April 13, 2021, which happened in a seven-inning game.
The Orioles finished Friday’s game with 10 walks and six hits. They now rank second in the American League in walks an 14th in hits.
The O’s got back-to-back home runs from Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson in the first inning and a two-run homer from Jim Palmer in the second inning to power their way to an 8-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. In addition to his power at the plate, Palmer earned the complete-game victory on the mound. The 1966 Orioles started the season with an 11-1 record in the month of April.

Focus more on … Cedric Mullins: 2-for-5 with a grand slam and a ninth-inning double off of All-Star Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader.
Focus less on … RISP: 1-for-13 including failing to plate a run with the bases loaded and nobody out in the bottom of the eighth inning of a one-run game.
