Orioles break MLB record for most home runs allowed in a single season

Just one day after tying the MLB record for most home runs allowed in a season, the Orioles have broken the tie with the 2016 Cincinnati Reds for the most homers allowed by a team in a single season.

On Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Orioles gave up their 259th and 260th home run of 2019. Right fielder Austin Meadows took one long off Orioles starter Asher Wojciechowski in the third inning during the four-game series opener. In the fifth inning, shortstop Willy Adames hit a solo homer, also off Wojciechowski.

So, what other disasters could hit the Orioles, at the rate things are going for them?
