On this day in 1970, the Orioles defeated the New York Yankees 6-2 in 10 innings. Mike Cuellar pitched the entire game to record his 10th win of the season. Cuellar allowed 7 hits while walking 1 and striking out 6.
The game was won on Brooks Robinson's 10th inning grand slam homerun. Brooks went 3 for 5 with 2 runs scored and 5 RBI on the day.
Of note, Cuellar surrendered Yankee pitcher Mel Stottlemyre's first homerun of the season.
Last year MLB posted this job description:

As I said at the time, you might as well call the job “Director of Collusion.”
