Nunez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 16-4 loss against the Rays on Friday.
It was a forgettable night for the Orioles, but Nunez was the lone bright spot. He accounted for two of Baltimore's five hits, and he drove in half of their runs. Nunez already has 21 homers this season, which is an incredible number considering he came into the season with nine long balls in 266 major league at-bats during his entire career. Nunez is batting .243 with 39 extra-base hits, 51 RBI and 44 runs in 305 at-bats this season.

Nunez went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run Wednesday against the Rays.
Nunez took Jose Alvarado deep in the ninth inning to record his 19th home run of the season. After failing to record a home run from June 8 to June 28, Nunez has three home runs in three starts since June 29. While his .241 batting average and .304 on-base percentage are poor, Nunez has proven capable of providing streaky power production, posting a .493 slugging percentage across 316 plate appearances for the campaign.

The two long balls ended a 15-game home-run drought for the 25-year-old.
