  1. On this day in 1970, the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Cleveland Indians as Jim Palmer won his 20th game of the season with a 7-0 complete game shutout. Palmer allowed just 4 hits, including doubles by John Lowenstein and Vada Pinson, while walking 3 and striking out 8. Mark Belanger led the way with a 4 for 4 game in which he tripled, scored 3 runs and had 3 RBI. Brooks Robinson went 1 for 3 with 1 run scored and 2 RBI to contribute to the winning effort. BOX SCORE
  2. #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Baltimore Orioles fell to the Cleveland Indians by a score of 4-2. Jim Rittwage won his first game of the year with a 6 hit, 2 run complete game effort. The Cleveland right-hander walked 2 and struck out 7. Dave McNally took the loss following 7.0 innings of work in which he allowed 3 runs on 7 hits while walking 3 and striking out 5. McNally went 1 for 2 with 1 run scored at the plate. Curt Motton (1 for 4) scored the Birds other run and Terry Crowley and Davey Johnson provided the RBI. BOX SCORE
  3. #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the Baltimore Orioles beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 in 11 innings. The winning run came on a Don Baylor RBI single that scored Paul Blair who pinch ran for Roger Freed. Freed opened the inning with a walk. Blair stole second base and advanced to third on a Vern Fuller error on the play. Don Baylor went 2 for 5 with 3 RBI and Bobby Grich went 1 for 3 with a triple and 1 RBI. Pete Richert pitched 2.0 scoreless and hitless innings to get the win; he did walk 3 with 1 strikeout, however. BOX SCORE
  4. #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, by virtue of a 5-4 New York Yankees loss to the Boston Red Sox in 10 innings, the Baltimore Orioles clinched the AL East Division title before their game with the Washington Senetors even started. The Orioles were shutout 2-0 for a second day in a row in what was a complete game duel between Mike Cuellar (8.0 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 4K) and Dick Bosman (9.0 IP, 5 H, 4 K). Two of the Orioles five hits came from pinch hitters Johnny Oates and Curt Motton. The Orioles record stood at 96-53. BOX SCORE

  7. I apologize for being behind but my schedule at MedStar Harbor's lab and the demands placed on us with Covid-19 testing especially force me to get these posted when I can.
