Matt Wieters hit his 100th career home run in the eighth inning of Wednesday's second game against the Toronto Blue Jays, then admitted that he had been pressing to hit the century mark while he's still playing in Baltimore.

He was responding to a question about whether that particular home run meant more to him than the first 99.

"It does," he said. "I've been pressing the last few games. I wanted to hit 100 before this year's over, so no matter what happens in the future I hit 100 as an Oriole."

Wieters acknowledged the possibility that he might end up somewhere else after he becomes a free agent in November and said he was trying to stop and smell the roses just in case he doesn't come back to the Orioles.

"Yeah, and I do that at the end of every year," he said. "You think about the year a little bit, but this will be a different offseason for me, not really knowing, so I am taking in as much as I can and it's been a great time in Baltimore. So I want to try and relive some memories here if I have to."

Chris Davis, who hit his 200th career homer in the same game, also seems to be getting nostalgic as the possibility of moving on is starting to hit home.

"I'm trying not to reminisce too much just yet," he said. "I definitely want to enjoy these last few games, just kind of take everything in, being around these guys, playing in front of our fans and wearing this uniform. I try not to let myself look too far ahead. I think, if I did that, it would be a lot harder the last few days and take some joy away. I'm trying to take everything in and enjoy it."
