Baltimore Ekes Out Series Win v. Seattle

May 29: Seattle 5, Baltimore 2

Randy Johnson returned to the mound after missing a couple of starts and looked as good as ever. 14 strikeouts to three walks was his best strikeout-to-walk ratio of any start this season. Alvin Davis helped Johnson out with three hits including a double, and Ichiro Suzuki singled, tripled, and scored three of Seattle’s five runs.

Eddie Murray was the only Oriole with a hot bat in this one and doubled twice and homered.

Felix Hernandez was stung for three round-trippers by Baltimore’s powerful lineup. Ken Singleton led off the bottom the first with one, and Frank Robinson and Eddie Murray went back-to-back in the second inning. It was Murray’s fourth homer in the last three games. O’s starter Johnny Niggeling kept the Mariners in check for eight innings.

Jamie Moyer deserved better in this one after stifling the Orioles for two runs in his six innings of work. Robinson Cano did his part trying to support Moyer with two doubles and a single, but the Mariners could only scratch across single runs in the third, fourth, and fifth.

Seattle was clinging to a 3-2 lead through seven and a half innings, but Frank Robinson led off the bottom of the eighth with a game-tying jimmy-jam against Tom Wilhelmsen, after which George Sisler and Eddie Murray both singled. That brought Arthur Rhodes to the mound, who did retire three straight, but Sisler came home to score the go-ahead run on a sac fly.
