Brandon Nimmo spearheaded the New York Mets unstoppable offense on Wednesday night with five hits in their 16-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Nimmo went 5-for-5 with two doubles, triple, three RBI and three runs scored. His five hits were a career-high and the 34th time in team history a player has collected at least five hits. The last player to do so was Wilmer Flores on July 3, 2016 when he had six hits.
The outfielder has now reached base in nine straight plate appearances and is slashing .483/.559/.966 with 12 runs scored, seven doubles and seven RBI over his last seven games.
“Nights like these, you just want to bottle them up and live in them forever,” Nimmo said after the game. “Because it’s pretty special.”
Nimmo is hitting .263/.387/.503 with 21 doubles, eight triples, 15 homers and 39 RBI on the season.
