This Cedric Mullins cat is pretty damn good and despite his reputation as baseball’s best bunter, he does a lot more than lay em’ down. He walks down pitchers too, as evidenced by his going 5-for-5 while scoring three times in Sunday’s win over the Red Sox.
This guy went banoodles today! https://t.co/JOqg6dK9s5

That perfect day followed a 2-for4 performance in a 4-2 win over Boston on Saturday.
Mullins is on fire and off to an electrifying start in his first full season in the majors. The 26-year-old speed demon is now 9-for-13 at the plate, making it a no-brainer for skipper Brandon Hyde to keep him in the leadoff spot.
He’s already making history.
Cedric Mullins first player in O’s history to go 5-for-5 with at least 3 doubles

Looks like we have another Black Knight breaking through in the game and establishing himself as a Soul Patroller of great impact. The left-handed hitter looks to stay hot as the Orioles travel to New York for a three-game series with the Yankees.
Don’t look now but the projected cellar dweller Orioles are 3-0. Must Be The Mullins.
