1989 The Orioles' Cal Ripken passes Steve Garvey, the National League leader, for the third-longest major league consecutive-game streak when he plays in his 1,208th straight contest, an 11-6 victory over the Blue Jays at Memorial Stadium. The 28-year-old shortstop trails only Everett Scott (1,307 games - Red Sox, 1916-25) and Lou Gehrig (2,130 games - Yankees, 1925-1939).
2017 Orioles third baseman Manny Machado goes deep three times, including a walk-off grand slam off Keynan Middleton in the team's 9 -7 victory over the Angels. The 25-year-old infielder's trio of round-trippers accounts for seven RBIs and three runs in the Camden Yards contest.
