Baltimore Bounces Minnesota

Baltimore 7 Minnesota 1
Brooks Robinson went 3 for 4
with a two doubles and a triple.
It looked bleak early for the struggling O's after Twins Pitcher Dave Boswell smacked a 312 foot homer in the top half of the 3rd.  But the pitcher dinger must have only aroused the sleeping giant as Baltimore struck back with a vengeance in the bottom half of the inning, scoring 5 runs, including a 352 foot home run by Paul Blair.  The solo homer by the Twins was the only run they would muster all game as Tom Phoebus went the distance striking out 9 to garner his first victory of the season.  Brooks Robinson was a house on fire, going 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and a triple.  Baltimore improves to 2-2 on the season and will travel to the West Coast to face Oakland in just 2 days.  Minnesota drops to 3-4.
