Austin Hays became the sixth player in Orioles history to hit a carousel, a feat he accomplished amid a lingering downpour.
Facing Washington Nationals left-hander Patrick Corbin on Wednesday, Hays singled in the first inning, homered a solo in the third and a triple in the fourth.
But heavy rain stopped play for 44 minutes in the fifth inning after the game became official with Baltimore up 3-0. It was raining again in the sixth, when the 26-year-old outfielder scored a center double against Steve Cishek to complete his feat.
The game was called off before the seventh inning due to heavy rain. The game did not resume and Baltimore won 7-0.
The last Baltimore player to hit for a carousel was Jonathan Villar against the Yankees in August 2019. Before that, Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken Jr., Aubrey Huff and Felix Pie accomplished the feat.
