. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Extending their winning streak to 12 games, the Orioles captured a 3-2 decision from the Mariners in 11 innings. The score was 1-1 after nine frames when Leon Roberts put the Mariners ahead with a solo homer in the top of the 10th, but the Orioles got the equalizer in their half of the inning on a round-tripper by Eddie Murray with two out.

In the bottom of 11th, Pat Kelly walked, stole second and advanced to third on a bunt single by Billy Smith. After Rick Dempsey drew a walk to load the bases, Kiko Garcia hit a grounder that resulted in a forceout at the plate. But Larry Harlow then singled off the glove of first baseman Dan Meyer for the winning run. [The Sporting News]
