Nate McLouth’s bat is starting to warm up for the Baltimore Orioles.

The Whitehall native singled twice in five at-bats, scored and stole his second base of the season on Friday in the Baltimore Orioles’ come-from-behind 9-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

McLouth scored his second run of the game ahead of Chris Davis, whose grand slam homer broke a 5-all tie in the bottom of the eighth inning.

In three games this season, McLouth is batting .308.
