The youth movement is on in Baltimore.
In addition to the Baltimore Orioles being a surprise postseason contender this year, they’ve gotten some contributions from a ton of exciting young players that are ready to take the league by storm.
The latest do it is Orioles No. 9 prospect Kyle Stowers, who hit his first Major League home run last night against the Chicago White Sox.
And he did it in dramatic fashion too.
The White Sox were one strike away from winning the game with star closer Liam Hendriks on the mound.
Stowers sent an 0-2 pitch over the center field wall to tie the game for the O’s, who eventually won the game on Anthony Santander‘s RBI single in the 11th.

Stowers Comes Up Clutch
Here is yet another young prospect in Baltimore who is ready to make his presence felt.
Stowers was ultimately given a second chance.
He had popped a ball into foul territory, which looked to be an easy play for Adam Engel.
But instead of catching it and securing a White Sox win, Engel dropped the ball.
Stowers took advantage of his second chance and delivered one of the biggest hits of the night, tying the game on his home run.
But being down 0-2 with the game on the line didn’t faze him one bit.
Now, Orioles fans have another young player to be excited about who can come up big in the clutch and make some things happen when the game is on the line.
Stowers made a good first impression last night.
If he can keep doing that, then the Orioles have a special player on their team and a guy who can help usher in a new era in Baltimore.
