O-Birds Dump on White Sox

GAME ONE The White Sox rallied late, plating all of their runs in the final 3 innings to best Baltimore 9-2. Claudell Washington’s (4) home run just inside the RF foul pole gave the Sox a 2-1 lead in the 6th and all the runs they would need for winner Rich Wortham (4-5). Lamar Johnson also had a big day with 3 hits, including a pair of doubles.

GAME TWO – A dandy southpaw pitching duel finds Mike Flanagan (10-2) nipping Ken Kravec (6-5) 1-0. Baltimore notched its only run in the 5th when Al Bumbry singled home Doug DeCinces. Both pitchers surrendered just 4 hits apiece. 

GAME THREE – Ken Singleton’s (11) 6th inning grand slam completely turned this game around, taking the score from 7-4 Chicago to 8-7 Baltimore. The O’s went on to take the game and the series with an 11-7 triumph. Eddie Murray (16) also went deep and Al Bumbry chipped in 4 hits and two SBs. Sammy Stewart (5-1) got the win in relief.
