The Baltimore Orioles lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 on this day in 1983. The story of the game was “all and nothing”.
The Blue Jays needed only the 6th inning to win the game as they scored all 5 of their runs in that inning. Buck Martinez’s (1 for 3, 1 run, 4 RBI) 2 out grand slam was the lowlight for the Orioles’ pitchers. It was surrendered by Tim Stoddard in relief of starter, Storm Davis. Davis exited after 5.2 innings with the bases loaded. He was tagged with giving up 3 earned runs on 3 hits while walking 4 and striking out 6.
The Orioles offense was all John Lowenstein: he went 1 for 3 with a run scored, a homerun and 2 RBI.
Blue Jays’ starter Jim Clancy gave up just 1 run on 5 hits in gaining the win.
Season Record: 29-23
