Adam Jones still doesn’t have a contract extension, but he’s got a 17-game hitting streak.
One accomplishment at a time.
Wieters is 5-for-51, but he produced his 22nd RBI of the season.
The Orioles lead the majors with 72 home runs, with 53 against right-handers and with 45 solo shots.
Royals starter Felipe Paulino shut out the Orioles over seven innings in Kansas City, but they’re getting to him today.
Wei-Yin Chen has allowed three hits, walked one and struck out two in four scoreless innings. He’s thrown 62 pitches, 41 for strikes.
This is more like it.
Remember that Chen allowed six runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings in his last start against the Nationals. He hadn’t permitted more than three earned runs in any of his first seven outings.
