Recalling the 1970 Orioles World Series Clinching Win In Game 5

July 7, 2019

“A ground ball to third, Robinson to Powell and the Orioles win!”

That was the succinct, great call of Jim McIntyre on national radio (NBC) as the Baltimore Orioles clinched the 1970 World Series in 5 games vs the Cincinnati Reds.

The year before in a Thursday afternoon  road game 5, at New York, the O’s were eliminated  by the New York Mets.

A year later, in a Thursday afternoon home game, the Orioles gained redemption winning (9-3) in #5, with Mike Cuellar hurling a complete game.

Day World Series and complete games, where have you gone?!!
