More Frank (Robinson) 2 Grand Slams Notes

June 27, 2020

In the game the day before he hit two grand slam home runs, Frank Robinson was slightly injured making a game saving catch at Fenway Park, on a drive hit by Reggie Smith of the Boston Red Sox.

That occurred in the bottom of the 13th inning with the score tied at 7.

He then contributed an rbi bunt single, “tuning” the second of 6 Orioles’ runs in the top of the 14th inning, in an eventual (13-8) win.

The next night pitcher Dave McNally, lead off man Don Buford and second place hitter, Mark Belanger were on base for both of Frank’s grand slam home runs, again in the 5th and 6th innings of a (13-2) win at Washington, vs the Senators on June 26, 1970.

Andy Etchebarren, pictured above, who we sadly lost last October (another from the great Orioles’ teams is gone), had a game tying 2 out, ninth inning home run and the go ahead, 14th inning rbi hit in the O’s (13-8) win, cited above.

On a lighter note, I do remember that card of Andy, pictured above.
