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.
The 5–4 win moved the Orioles to 62–57, five games behind the New York Yankees in the AL East. - Mike Fiammetta
