On This Day In Baltimore Orioles History: 5/8/1983 #35thAnniversary


The Oakland Athletics shutout the Orioles 1-0 on this day in 1983.

Wayne Gross homered off of Tippy Martinez in the 8th inning to account for the game’s only run.

Martinez, pitching in relief of the game’s starter Storm Davis, took the loss.

Cal Ripken, Jr (2 for 3) had half of the Orioles’ 4 hits on the day; the hitters really couldn’t figure out Oakland’s pitching.

Season Record: 15-11
