Baltimore Stomps Kansas City

May 26: Baltimore 16, Kansas City 3

Ick. KC was not prepared for the Baltimore attack. Every Oriole reached base, but the top four in the order had a field day. Ken Singleton singled, walked twice, and doubled in his first four plate appearances, and scored all four times. George Sisler had a double, single, and triple in his first three PAs, added a walk later in the game, and scored thrice. Frank Robinson got plunked twice, swatted two singles, and scored twice. And Eddie Murray had the best day of all with a walk, single, two homers, and four runs.

Most of the Royals were helpless against Erik Bedard and then Stu Miller, but Mike Sweeney pounded his first multi-homer game. But they were like drips compared to the ocean of Baltimore runs.

May 27: Baltimore 7, Kansas City 2jones

Jose Rosado looked more prepared the next day, and was nicely containing the Baltimore offense through 3.2 innings. With two outs and nobody on in the fourth, Ken Singleton walked, Cal Ripken singled, Brooks Robinson singled, and all of a sudden the bases were loaded. Adam Jones cleared them with a back-breaking grand slam.

May 28: Baltimore 7, Kansas City 4

Kansas City jumped on Jack Powell for four runs in the first inning on hits by Kevin Seitzer, Willie Wilson, Mike Sweeney, Danny Tartabull, and Hal McRae. But Powell and then Darren O’Day shut the Royals down from there, and the Baltimore bats couldn’t be tamed by Mark Gubicza. George Sisler, Ken Williams, Cal Ripken, and Brooks Robinson all had clutch RBI knocks as the Orioles came from behind to sweep KC.
