1962 Tying a major league mark, Orioles catcher Charlie Lau hits four doubles in Baltimore's 10-3 victory over the Indians at Memorial Stadium. The future hitting guru's quartet of two-baggers also establishes a new team record.
1971 Frank Robinson, who hit a two-run home run in the Mid-Summer Classic, is named the MVP of the contest won by the American League at Tiger Stadium, 6-4. The Orioles right fielder joins teammate Brooks Robinson as the second player to be named the Most Valuable Player of a league (1961-NL, 1966-AL), a World Series (1966), and an All-Star Game.
1990 Dave Johnson retires 27 of the last 29 batters he faces, but loses his complete game effort to Minnesota, 3-1. The Oriole starter's undoing is a two-run home run hit by John Moses in the first, an inning that takes the right-hander 33 pitches to complete, compared to the 83 tosses he will make during the rest of the Memorial Stadium contest.
1991 At Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, four Oriole hurlers combined to throw a no-hitter, blanking the A's, 2-0. Starting pitcher Bob Milacki holds the home team hitless for the first six innings, followed by Mike Flanagan, Mark Williamson, and Gregg Olson, who all throw one inning of no-hit ball.
