The Baltimore Orioles hitters aren’t going to want the Houston Astros pitching staff to ever leave Camden Yards.

After demolishing the visitors 13-5 on Friday during a six-homer onslaught, Baltimore’s big bats were at it again early Saturday.

The Orioles jumped out to an early 5-1 lead during the first inning courtesy of four home runs. Adam Jones went deep to left on the first pitch of the game from Astros starter Collin McHugh. Hyun Soo Kim followed with a single before Manny Machado, Chris Davis, and Mark Trumbo went back-to-back-to-back.

Dating back to 1900, it’s the first time a team has hit four home runs before recording an out, according to Stats Inc.

The quartet of Jones, Machado, Davis, and Trumbo have combined to hit 116 home runs this season, more than the Kansas City Royals, Miami Marlins, Atlanta Braves, San Francisco Giants, and Pittsburgh Pirates.

Despite the run support, Orioles starter Wade Miley made a mess of his outing. He allowed six runs off six hits to the Astros and was pulled after just 1 2/3 innings.
