It's safe to say that the Baltimore Orioles were hot on Saturday against the New York Yankees.

The Orioles hit four home runs, but no one felt more relieved after his HR than J.J. Hardy. He hit his first homer of the year, but as he went back into the dugout, his teammates gave him the silent treatment. To congratulate himself, Hardy started to throw sunflower seeds and give himself high-fives.

Eventually, Hardy's teammates did give him some love. After all, it was a great day for the Orioles, getting a 6-1 win at Yankee Stadium.
