O's Fly Past White Sox

GAME ONE The visiting Orioles piled up 16 singles to defeat the White Sox 6-4 on a rainy night in Chicago. Mark Belanger led the way with 3 knocks. Mike Cuellar (8-1) grabbed the win on the mound; Gary Peters (6-4) the loss. Carlos May donned the Golden Sombrero with 4 strikeouts. 

GAME TWO – “Beltin” Bill Melton’s (12) 2-run blast in the B9 evened the series as the ChiSox walked off with a 6-4 victory. Baltimore had plated 3 runs in the 8th to take a 4-2 lead with Paul Blair’s 2-run single being the biggest blow. Chicago’s response in the 9th began with back to back doubles by Bob Christian and Woodie Held off Jim Palmer (5-2). Ron Hansen pinch ran for Held and scored on a Tommy McGraw single. One out later, Melton ended it.

GAME THREE – Dave McNally (9-4) went the distance allowing just 1 run on 3 hits as the O’s took the DH opener 4-1. McNally helped himself offensively with 2 hits, and RBI and a run scored. Dave Johnson chipped in 3 hits. 

GAME FOUR – The Orioles sweep the double header taking an early 6-1 lead and cruising to a 12-6 win. Chico Salmon (3 hits) and Clay Dalrymple (2 hits) led the offensive attack with a homer each and 3 and 4 RBI, respectively. Melton and Ed Herrmann went yard for the Pale Hose on a windy day in Chitown.
