Hopefully.EDTShareTweetShareShareMonday night Orioles game thread: vs Athletics, 7:05 Brad Penner-USA TODAY SportsThe Orioles are still searching for their first home win of the season. Chris Davis is still in pursuit of his first hit of the season anywhere. Both things could happen today, and they could both also not happen. The latter feels eminently more possible given how the O’s have played over the last four games.The visiting Athletics are on a losing streak of their own. They were just swept in a three-game series with the Astros. For more on the current state of the A’s, check out Harrison Jozwiak’s series preview posted earlier today.Manager Brandon Hyde is starting to figure out which hitters he can count on and then build his lineup accordingly. Boy, are the 6-9 spots (currently) a black hole from which no offense can escape. The slugging percentages of the bottom four hitters are, in order, .000, .261, .087, .091. Opposing pitching staffs should be shaking in their New Balance spikes with numbers like that.As the old saying goes, that is why they play the games. Davis might luck into a hit. Andrew Cashner could toss a gem and Richie Martin might get a ball out of the outfield.

We're a team that's primed and ready to do that."The previous record was 264, which the Seattle Mariners set in 1997.As Judge pointed out, the Yankees set such a record even though they dealt with a number of health concerns. Gary Sanchez was sidelined multiple times with groin strains, Greg Bird underwent ankle surgery and Judge himself missed time with a broken wrist.Judge finished the 2018 season with 27 home runs in 112 games after drilling 52 long balls in 155 games the previous year. What's more,GiancarloStanton hit 38 home runs last year after hitting 59 in 2017 on the Miami Marlins.There may have been a slight adjustment period after he signed with the Yankees, but Stanton and Judge returning to their 2017 forms would put crushing the record very much in play.The Bronx Bombers are not without injury worries, though, as shortstop Didi Gregorius is sidelined following Tommy John surgery after hitting 27 home runs in 2018. New York added five-time All-Star TroyTulowitzki, who figures to help it pursue that record until the starter is ready to return.Expect another step for third baseman MiguelAndujaras well after he hit 27 long balls as a rookie. He now has experience under his belt and gives the Yankees another slugger in their potent lineup.New York has both the champion Boston Red Sox and a new home run record in its sights.
