Roberts Breaks His Own O's Record for Doubles

Move over Beau Bell.

With his run-scoring double in the third inning of Tuesday night's game against the Rays, Brian Roberts has set an Orioles record for doubles in a season with 52.

The total tops Roberts' previous record of 51, which he established just last season. Beau Bell hit 51 doubles with the 1937 St. Louis Browns.

Roberts now owns or shares the top three spots in the Orioles' record book for doubles in a season.

He is tied with Bell for the second-most doubles (51) and Miguel Tejada (50) for the third-highest total.

George Sisler, Aubrey Huff, Nick Markakis, Heine Manush, Cal Ripken, and Joe Vosmik round out the team's Top 10.
