Jonathan Schoop, 2014 Topps Green #83

Was your Memorial Day as good as Jonathan Schoop's? The rookie second baseman had a pair of solo home runs to help the Orioles rally from a 6-3 seventh-inning deficit. His second round-tripper came with two outs in the ninth off of Milwaukee closer Francisco Rodriguez, closing the gap to 6-5. Delmon Young followed with a pinch single, and Nick Markakis doubled in pinch runner David Lough with the tying run. In the tenth inning, a J. J. Hardy double was followed by a run-scoring single by new O's catcher Nick Hundley to cap the comeback. But the Birds never would've gotten to that point without Schoop's pair of big late-inning hits.
