BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore’s lineup has looked formidable through the first two games of this season — and never more than in the sixth inning Saturday.

The Orioles made an entire trip through the batting order without an out starting the bottom of the sixth, with all nine hitters coming in to score. That turned a 3-1 lead into a 12-1 advantage against the Los Angeles Angles.

Ryan Mountcastle led off with a walk, and Ryan O’Hearn’s single chased Los Angeles starter Griffin Canning. Then Austin Hays hit an RBI single off Luis García, and Cedric Mullins followed with a run-scoring double.

Jordan Westburg drove in two runs with a single, then Baltimore caught a break when shortstop Zach Neto made an error on Ramón Urías’ routine grounder. Guillermo Zuñiga relieved García and promptly allowed a two-run triple to Gunnar Henderson.

After a walk to Adley Rutschman, Anthony Santander hit a three-run homer.

Nine batters, nine runs, still nobody out.

The last team to do that was the Kansas City Royals in the first inning on Sept. 29, 2023, against the New York Yankees, according to Sportradar.

Arizona scored 14 runs in the third Thursday against Colorado, but the Diamondbacks only made it through the first seven hitters before the first out.
