Orioles and Angels Split Series

Frank Robinson helps Orioles to first win of
the season.
GAME 1:  California's 1B Chuck Hinton broke what was a true pitching dual by hammering a 385 ft homer, in the 8th, giving the Angels a 1 run lead that they would never relinquish.  A cherry on the top run in the ninth capped the game for Cally giving them a 2-0 win.  Jim McGlothin was superb.  Pitching 8 innings, giving up 6 hits and 6 strikeouts.

GAME 2: It looked bleak early for the "O's" as Angel 2B Rick Reichardt stole 2nd and then 3rd, eventually scoring, in the 4th.  But Baltimore responded behind a double from RB Frank Robinson scoring Paul Blair, and eventually scoring himself, in the bottom half of the inning to make it 2-1.  California would tie the game in the top of the 8th, but again it was a quick reply by Baltimore putting up 2 runs of their own and eventually clinching their first win of the season, 4-2.  Frank Robinson went went 3 for 4 with a double but was overlooked for game MVP honors which went surprisingly to P Bruce Howard who went 6 innings striking out 6.
