I think Mussina set the K record for a playoff game that year. Then the same post season, Eric Gregg one of the worst umps in the known universe ever. Gave Livan Hernandez a five foot strike zone(hyperbole of course) and he tied Mussina's record. Can't have an Oriole holding a record by himself after all.
I'm being quasi facetious but that still kind of irks me.
Palmer's complete game shutout in game 2 of the '66 World Series was the greatest and most important pitching performance in Orioles history (IMHO). Aside from the fact that he became the youngest pitcher to throw a shutout in World Series history, he was facing the best pitcher in the game, Sandy Koufax, in his home park in his farewell game. The Orioles weren't supposed to have a chance against the Dodgers. This game showed they were legit. It set the stage for shutouts by Bunker in Game 3 and McNally in Game 4. Compared to these "intangibles," the game score doesn't mean hooey.
