If you are keeping track, that is a new career high 10 homers for Matt Wieters after he connected for a two-run shot off David Pauley in the last of the seventh. That pulled the O’s within 5-4 of the M’s.
Wieters probably caught Pauley early last year when both played for Norfolk.
Wieters last year: 9 homers in 354 at bats.
Wieters this year: 10 homers in 336 at bats.
He had just one homer over his last 17 games before he drilled a 3-1 pitch for a 397-foot shot to right.
It was just his third homer in 47 games at Camden Yards this year and he has hit eight of his ten batting left handed in 2010.
