Best individual performance: Gerardo Parra's five-hit game, Aug. 16
Gerardo Parra struggled at the plate during his time with the Orioles, but he had perhaps his best game of the season with his new team. Parra was the catalyst in the Orioles' 18-2 rout of the Oakland Athletics on Aug. 16. As part of a 26-hit attack, Parra tied his career high with five hits in six at-bats, including a double and a home run. He scored three runs and finished with three RBIs. Parra homered in the first, drove in a run in a four-run second and the Orioles never looked back.
