July 25: Baltimore 4, Oakland 3

Starters Jack Powell and Rube Waddell both went nine innings and gave up three earned runs. But Cal Ripken reached second base on a Rickey Henderson error to lead off the top of the eighth and came around to score the winning, unearned run for Baltimore.

It’s maybe not time for A’s fans to panic about Tim Hudson, but after starting the year so strong, he followed up his first bad start of the year with another stinker in this one. After not allowing six or more earned runs in his first 17 starts, he’s now done it in back-to-back games. He dropped from the fifth best ERA in the league to 15th best over his last two games.

George Sisler smacked three extra-base hits, two doubles and a dong.
