On this day in 1990, the Orioles tied the record for consecutive singles (with eight) in a 13-1 rout of the Rangers. On a day in 2011 where 5 games ended as shutouts and 4 went to extra innings, Mike Gonzalez is ejected from an Orioles-Yankees game in the top 15th inning after hitting Chris Dickerson in the head. The ejection forces Buck Showalter to replace Gonzalez with Jeremy Guthrie.
