May 23, 2019 8:02 AM

Gleyber Torres homered twice against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night, giving him 10 in 11 games against the team this season.

The Orioles have given up 105 home runs in 49 games.

"There's definitely a pitching plan [against Torres]; it's definitely not to throw the ball in the middle of the plate -- and we just continue to do it," Brandon Hyde said. "When you don't do it, we get him out.

"Gleyber's got two homers besides facing the Orioles. Hitting like .220 or something. So people, major league pitchers, are pitching to him."

Torres actually is hitting .250 against all other teams. Against the Orioles, he is batting .465, with a whopping 1.763 OPS.

Orioles Fastest Ever To Allow 100 Home Runs

May 22, 2019 7:50 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."
