Wieters busting out, Orioles win 10-4

I had to use some form of the word “bust.”

Matt Wieters is having himself quite a night. He’s doubled, homered, driven in four runs and scored twice, and the Orioles have taken a 10-4 lead over the White Sox in the seventh inning.

Wieters is 9-for-10 with two doubles, three homers and 15 RBIs with runners in scoring position this season. With two outs, he’s 6-for-7 with two doubles and 10 RBIs.

For the season, Wieters is batting .264 with four homers and 16 RBIs. He’s also throwing out runners, blocking pitches, blocking the plate, catching foul tips, making great tags, calling a great game.

Before tonight, Wieters was 2-for-15 with one homer and RBI against left-handed pitching. His home run came against lefty John Danks, and he doubled off lefty Chris Sale.

“I feel good right now,” Wieters said afterward on MASN, “and hopefully I can keep this going as long as possible.”

Into October works for me.
