    Video: Melvin Upton, Jr. robs J.J. Hardy of a home run

    The Orioles have been on something of an offensive rampage. In the month of June, the club has hit 54 home runs, leaving them four home runs shy of matching the all-time record for home runs in a month set by the 1987 Orioles and 1999 Mariners. They were robbed of a home run on Tuesday night against the Padres, as Melvin Upton, Jr. made a dazzling catch over the wall in center field to bring back a J.J. Hardy home run.
