Orioles Fastest Ever To Allow 100 Home Runs 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed May 22, 2019 11:50 am

The Baltimore Orioles made history on Tuesday night.

The club\'s pitching staff allowed their 100th home run in their 48th game, reaching the mark faster than any club in Major League history.

The 2000 Kansas City Royals allowed their 100th homer in game No. 57.

The Orioles are on pace to allow 338 home runs this season. The current record is held by the 2016 Cincinnati Reds (258).

\"We\'re facing good teams, but you gotta pitch,\" Brandon Hyde said. \"You gotta pitch here. You gotta stay off the barrel. You gotta be able to locate. And if you don\'t, in a hitter\'s ballpark against guys that mash, you\'re going to give up a hundred homers, 40-something games into it.\"
