Hyun-Soo Kim, Joey Rickard, and Three-Hit Games in Context

Hyun-Soo KimHyun-Soo Kim and Joey Rickard are stacking three-hit games like it’s 2009. That’s the last time two Orioles rookies had three or more three-hit games in the season’s first 71 games. The duo then was Nolan Reimold and Matt Wieters.

Kim’s three-hit game on Sunday was his fifth of the season thus far, which is tied for third overall in team history through a player’s first 71 games. Billy Ripken leads the way with eight three-hit showings through 71 games in 1987.

How many times have multiple rookies had a trio of three-hit games for the Orioles through the season’s first 71 contests? It has happened 10 times since 1954, with two of those occasions (1991 and 1955) featuring three rookies.
