Saturday night’s game between the Baltimore Orioles and Houston Astros did a perfect job of showing where these organizations are at right now. The 2018 champion Astros came away with a 23-2 victory over the Orioles at Camden Yards. Yes, a 21-run victory for Houston.

Rookie slugger Yordan Alvarez cranked three home runs (like another rookie on the night- Reds’ outfielder Aristides Aquino), though the third dinger came against Orioles outfielder Steve Wilkerson, beer-league softball style.

Houston star shortstop Carlos Correa hit a 474-foot homer, the longest in Camden Yards history.

The Astros destroyed baseballs all night, with 19 batted balls of 100+ mph.

With the victory, the Astros have MLB’s best record (77-40) and run differential (+185).

As for the Orioles, well, yikes. Baltimore falls to 38-78 with the loss, and now have a -220 run differential.
