Long Ball Grounds Pilots as Orioles Sweep Through Seattle

Game 1: Baltimore 5 Seattle 2: WP McNally (8-3)  LP Bell (3-4)
Game 2: Baltimore 3 Seattle 2: WP Palmer (5-1) LP Brabender (1-6)
Game 3: Baltimore 5 Seattle 2: WP Cuellar (7-1)  LP Barber (4-3)

The Baltimore Orioles amassed 23 hits and 7 home runs over 3 games to help sweep the Seattle Pilots at Memorial Stadium.  The 3 game series saw Frank Robinson rip 3 homers (one in each game) to collect 14, 15 and 16 on the season.  Brooks Robinson added 2 to his total as well.  The Orioles got complete games from all their starting pitchers.  7 of Baltimore's total Runs came in the first inning of play.  Seattle did make it close in game 2 as Ex-Oriole Gene Brabender gave up 3 first inning runs only to shut down the Baltimore hitting machine after that.  However, a 2 run 2nd inning for the Pilots would not be enough to catch the Eastern Division leaders.  Baltimore improves their record to 43-12 and Seattle drops to 22-29.
