Trey Mancini's on such a roll that his O's teammates are hitting dingers with his bats

Trey Mancini came to the Major Leagues to hit dingers and chew bubblegum, and he's all out of bubblegum. After launching two more homers during Baltimore's 11-4 win over Toronto on Sunday, the O's first baseman now has seven in his first 12 big league games -- tying the Major League record.

Mancini's teammates have had a front-row seat for that dinger parade, and since they couldn't actually get Mancini to take their at-bats for them, they settled for the next best thing: using his spare Louisville Slugger C243s. Both Craig Gentry and Manny Machado borrowed Mancini's bats, and both went yard. 

"I'm more impressed with his bat," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter told MLB.com's Dhiren Mahiban.

"So Trey hits his second home run and Gentry grabs his bat and says, 'I'm going to give that bat a try' [and he] hits a home run. Manny says, 'You know what? Give me that bat' and Manny hit a home run so all of them with Mancini's bat -- I've never seen that before."

Luckily, we were able to grab an exclusive photo of the bat in question:
