On This Day In Baltimore Orioles’ History: 6/8/1983 #35thAnniversary

Tim Stoddard

The Baltimore Orioles beat the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 7-3 on this day in 1983.

The O’s won the gave with an eight hit attack that included homeruns by Ken Singleton, Cal Ripken, Jr and John Lowenstein.  Those homeruns accounted for 6 of the team’s 7 runs as each were 2-run bombs.

Tim Stoddard pitched for the win, his third without a loss, in relief of Allan Ramirez.  Stoddard struck out 1 in 1.1 innings of hitless and scoreless relief.

Paul Molitor went 3 for 5 with a run scored in the game and was a homerun shy of the cycle.  Brewer starter, Don Sutton, produced a quality start (7.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R (ER), 7 K) that was wasted by the bullpen which surrendered 5 runs on 4 hits.

Season Record: 32-23
