Orioles Take Series Over Detroit In Home Opener

GAME 1: Baltimore 2  Detroit 1
Memorial Stadium welcomed home their AL Conference Champions for the first time this season as the Orioles battled league rivals, Detroit, in a fierce pitching battle.  Baltimore's Jim Palmer kept the Tigers caged all day allowing only 5 hits and striking out 6.  Orioles put up 2 runs in the second inning and it would be all Palmer would need to get his first victory of the season.


GAME 2: Detroit 5 Baltimore 0
 A complete game 2 hit, 5 strikeout gem was what the Tigers got out of starting pitcher Earl Wilson.  Wilson baffled Baltimore batters all day, throwing only 106 pitches in the Detroit win.  The Tigers put up 3 runs in the 1st inning, of off a slow starting Dave McNally (0-2), highlighted by a 319 foot homer by Mickey Stanley.  

GAME 3: Baltimore 4  Detroit 2
Mike "Crazy Horse" Cuellar has settled back into his 1969 groove as he picks up his 2nd win of the young season.  Cuellar pitched a complete game striking out 6 in the win.  Willie Horton (2)  homered in the 8th inning for the Tigers to try and rally Detroit but Cuellar closed things out before further damage could be done.  The win improves Baltimore to 4-2 on the season while Detroit drops to 2-4
