On This Day In 1970: June 6

Recommended Posts


On this day in 1970, the Orioles lost to the Brewers 6-4.  Jim Palmer started and lasted just 4.1 innings (7 H, 5 R, 1 BB, 6 K) and took the loss.  Earl Weaver used three relievers after removing Palmer.

The Orioles offense banged out 10 hits but they were not enough.

At the top of the batting order, Don Buford went 3 for 5 with 1 double, 1 run scored and 2 RBI.  Terry Crowley went 2 for 4 as well.

That's a game nobody would have predicted, Palmer losing to a 1-7 Milwaukee pitcher Brabender and a poor Milwaukee team in it's second year of existence.   

I always thought Seattle got a raw deal when the expansion team split after one season in 1969 leaving for Milwaukee.  Jim Bouton wrote a famous best-selling book "Ball Four" about that 1969 Seattle Pilots team playing in Sicks Stadium (the name fit the stadium) in Seattle .
