1. Awakening bats. After scoring more than four runs only once and never more than five in 19 games, the Orioles have scored 17 runs over their past two games. They brought home 10 runs Sunday before putting up seven Tuesday, and will be looking to keep that going Wednesday. The Orioles’ seven runs in the series opener came on just seven hits, but three were homers and they added six other base runners on five walks and a hit batsman.
