May 15, 1984 - Junior Comes Through
You know what I like about Thanksgiving breaks? More time for Statis Pro!!! Even better, I got to play with my favorite team...
Storm Davis allowed two runners in the top of the first inning but escaped the jam without allowing a run. Geoff Zahn wasn't so lucky. He gave up a lead off homer to Gary Roenicke and two batters later Cal Ripken Jr. parked a two run bomb of his own.
The Angels did score two runs in the third, though. The bases were loaded and Gary Pettis, who is hitting so far above his talent level this season I can't make heads or tails of it, roped a single to plate Bobby Grich and Fred Lynn.
The Orioles never relinquished their lead as Tom Underwood pitched a perfect ninth to save the day for Baltimore.
