Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is rumored to be on the trading block as the deadline approaches but he isn’t letting it affect his play. Wieters hit a walk-off home run in the 11th inning of Monday night’s game to beat the Atlanta Braves, 2–1. 

Wieters led off the inning and hit the second pitch he saw over the centerfield fence. It was Wieters’s fourth career walk-off homer and his first since May 2014. The win brought Baltimore’s record to 49–49.

Wieters now has four homers on the year in 33 games.
