Cedric Mullins made history over the weekend when he became the seventh Baltimore Oriole to have 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in a season.



If he continues to ride the wave of his most recent hitting streak, he’ll be adding some hardware at the end of the year. 

Mullins  homered in both Saturday and Sunday’s contest, and in doing so clinched the ninth 20-20 season in Baltimore Orioles history.


“It means everything,” said Mullins.  “I just hope to progress from here.”

There has been no post All-Star game slump for CM Storm despite the struggles of his Orioles.

Sunday he extended his career-long 16-game hitting streak with a home run off Michael Wacha on the first pitch of their game against Tampa Bay.

Mullins has without a doubt been the best leadoff hitter in the Majors this season as he has caught a pitcher being lackadaisical and homered to lead-off a game five times this season.

His Rickey Henderson – like efficiency ties him for the most lead off jacks by an Orioles player since Seth Brown in 2017.

He’s only one off the club record for a season.

He joins Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, Don Baylor and Paul Blair as the only Black players to ever do it for the O’s.

Mullins did it in 108 games, four more than Jackson who only took 104 in 1976 to accomplish the feat, which is the fastest ever in Orioles history.

These last two months of the season we’ll be seeing CM Storm playing for individual hardware.

He is currently tied for the American League lead in hits and is in third place for batting average, just slightly behind All-Star Michael Brantley.

Mullins is a front runner for one of the three outfield Silver Slugger awards.

He leads all American League outfielders in OPS, slugging percentage, doubles and sits in second in average, on base percentage and triples.

Mullins will have an off day on Monday and then look to extend his career-long hitting streak to 17 games when he takes on his former travel baseball teammate Akil Baddoo and the Detroit Tigers.
