Baltimore Orioles leftfielder Henry Urrutia hit a walk-off home run Wednesday night against the New York Mets for his first career home run.

With the game tied 4–4, Urrutia led off the bottom of the ninth after Mets reliever Carlos Torres entered for Tyler Clippard. On the fifth pitch he saw, a 92-mph fastball, Urrutia lined the ball the opposite way for the game-winning home run just over the leftfield wall at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

The home run was Urrutia’s only hit in four at-bats during the game. The 28-year-old Cuban was recalled from Triple A Norfolk on Saturday and has started five consecutive games, going 4 for 19 with five RBIs and three runs scored.
