The 2019 Baltimore Orioles are  officially in the record books. . Aaron Brooks gave up a home run  to Whit Merrifield  . in the third inning of the Orioles 8-1  victory over the Kansas City Royals. . It was the 258th home run allowed  by Baltimore this season, . tying the MLB record set by  the 2016 Cincinnati Reds. . The Orioles are now on pace to give up  330 home runs this season. . The New York Yankees have hit 61 home runs in 19 games against the Orioles, . setting a new record for most home runs against a single team in one season. . We've given up a ton of homers. What's the record ... 258? So, if it's 259 or 330, I don't care. I just want us to get better on the mound.  , Brandon Hyde, Baltimore manager, via statement
