O-Birds Dump on White Sox
ONE – The White Sox rallied late, plating
all of their runs in the final 3 innings to best Baltimore
9-2. Claudell ’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. Washington
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
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.
