Ramon Hernandez, 2007 Topps Turkey Red #112
This Day in Orioles History: June 30, 2007
Orioles 6, Angels 3 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Powered by a seventh inning three-run home run by catcher Ramon Hernandez, the O's take a Saturday night home game from the American League West-leading Angels. Starter Brian Burres improved to 4-2 by tossing a career-high seven and two-thirds innings, outlasting Halo pitcher Bartolo Colon. Veteran reliever Paul Shuey took over and went the rest of the way, earning his first major league save since 2002. Shuey had been retired due to a hip injury when the Birds gave him an invite to Spring Training a few months prior. Millar's two-out, two-run single in the fifth inning gave the Orioles a 2-1 lead, but Hernandez's big blast two innings later off of former O's reliever Hector Carrasco put the team ahead to stay.
