Baltimore Stays Hot, Bests Cleveland

bedardJune 10: Baltimore 7, Cleveland 1

Cleveland starter Addie Joss made a throwing error with two outs in the third inning that brought two runs home for Baltimore, and kept the inning going for Baltimore to drive two additional runs in that inning. Eddie Murray was the leading hitter in the game with two singles and a double.

Lefty Erik Bedard was splendid for six innings, and Hoyt Wilhelm backed him up with three quick shut-out innings.

The game got away from Sam McDowell and his Naps in the fourth inning. After starting the inning with a strikeout of Adam Jones, McDowell issued a free pass to the weak hitting Chris Hoiles. That was the first of five straight Orioles reaching safely. Bobby Grich, Ken Singleton, Frank Robinson, and Eddie Murray went single-walk-single-double to tally their four runs.

June 12: Cleveland 11, Baltimore 4

Cleveland avoided the sweep with an exclamation mark. They bum-rushed Jack Powell right out of the gates, Tris Speaker starting the game with a single and Joe Jackson following with a triple. It just got worse for Powell as he got rung up for seven runs in two innings of work. Jim Palmer finished the game for Baltimore, and didn’t fare a whole lot better. Cleveland took Palmer deep three times.

Baltimore has won 16 of their last 21.
