Orioles lose first home series of the season
The Twins scored three first-inning runs, including a two-run single from Kennys Vargas, and never looked back to complete a three-game sweep of the Orioles at Camden Yards yesterday. Entering their series with Minnesota, the Orioles had won each of their first seven home series this season. Over the last 10 seasons (since 2008), only one other team won their first seven home series to start a season: the 2014 Rockies (also a streak of seven). The Orioles had never had such a home streak of this length to start a season in franchise history before the 2017 campaign.
