The Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jaysand Kendrys Morales finishes 0-for-3 as his home run streak tops out at seven games. A streak of seven straight games with a home run, the longest such stretch in Toronto Blue Jays history, one short of the big-league mark of eight shared by Ken Griffey Jr.
Through May 17, the year-old was batting. Then he dumped his glasses, made a mechanical adjustment at the plate that kept him from lunging at pitches and beating balls into the ground, and flipped a miserable start on its ear.
But he works at it.
Randal Grichuk and Devon Travis have both rebounded from dismal starts to have productive years. Still, neither of them has enjoyed the Mature cebrity clips of stretch Morales had the past week. He hit eight homers over the seven games, all from the left side of the plate, making the most of the cookies thrown to him.
Starter Mature cebrity clips Hess and the rest of the Orioles were much more careful with Morales on Monday, throwing him one happy-zone curveball in the first that was fouled off, and little else in a prime hitting zone. Regardless, Morales kept getting opportunities and eventually made the most of them, rewarding the Blue Jays for showing him patience.
