The Baltimore Orioles used 17 players in the line-up on this day in 1983 as they fell to the Oakland Athletics 4-3 at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Jim Palmer struggled though 3.2 innings by surrendering 7 hits and 4 earned runs; he also walked 4 and struck out 3 and committed a balk.

John Lowenstein was the lone bright light for the Birds in the game as he went 1 for 2 with a double and 2 RBI before being pinch hit for by Gary Roenicke: no other Orioles hitter had a multi-hit game.

Winning pitcher Chris Codiroli stymied the Orioles over 7.0 innings of work.  He allowed just 4 hits and was responsible for 2 earned runs.  Additionally, he walked 4 and struck out 1.

Season Record: 9-8
