Henry Urrutia hits two homers, drives in five in four-hit effort for Double-A Bowie

The Baltimore Sun

Cuban outfielder Henry Urrutia delivered his best offensive game of his brief professional career Tuesday, hitting two homers, driving in five runs and recording his first career four-hit game in a 6-5 win for Double-A Bowie over Harrisburg.

The 26-year-old Urrutia hit a three-run homer in his first at-bat and then added a two-run shot in the fifth inning. It was his first game batting third for the Baysox.

Urrutia leads the Eastern League in hitting, batting .353/.419/.554 with five homers and 27 RBIs in 36 games.

Urrutia has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, hitting .375 in that span, and he has four multi-hit games in his last five games. He is batting .373 against right-handed pitching on the season.

Last week, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Urrutia would remain at the Double-A level for now so the organization can see how he makes adjustments to opposing pitchers as teams see more of him.
