Today in O’s history

On this day in 1999, Cal Ripken Jr. became the first Oriole to go 6-for-6 in a game, as the O’s scored the most runs in franchise history (at that time) on their way to a 22-1 win over the Braves. Cal’s six-hit game is still an Orioles single-game record, as are the five runs he scored off of his six hits in that game
