Must have jinxed him. With two out in the bottom of the 8th, catcher Jim Price singled to center to end Palmer's no-hit bid.

Well, Palmer ended up with a one-hitter.  That's two shutouts in a row for the Orioles as they improve to 2-1.  The Tigers have given up 24 runs in the last two games.  They are 0-3, dead last in the AL East.

Frank Robinson swung the big bat for the Orioles, going 3 for 5 with 6 RBIs, a double, and a grand salami in the 8th.  Paul Blair was 3 for 5, as well, with 2 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.

He must have hit at least 10 outs on his pitching card, which means (in the SI game) about 1/3 of the Tigers didn't even get a chance to roll on their card.

Next up for the Orioles, it's Mike Cuellar against the Indians and Sam McDowell. Should be a good one. So far, Orioles pitching has given up three runs in three games, their only loss being 3-2 against the 3-0 Red Sox.

It's amazing how many one-sided games I've had lately.  In this blow-out at Fenway, the Red Sox improved to 4-0 while the Senators dropped to 2-2.  Ken Brett showed that there's some life in the theory that the Senators cannot hit lefties, as he tossed a five-hit shutout.  Not to be outdone by Frank Robinson, Billy Conigliaro hit a grand slam over the Green Monster in the 8th to put this one away.  Not a lot of highlights for Washington, though Ed Stroud (2 hits, a double and a stolen base) continued to play well (despite having mostly faced lefties in four games).

I thought I'd post a sample screen shot of the game.  Though you can modify how the screen looks, this is the format I've chosen.  Note that Jenkins' "card" (more of a strip) is shown.  A green result means Rose's "card" will appear and a roll (using the 10-39 SI die) will determine the final result of the at bat.

After a rocky first inning for both pitchers, Cuellar and McDowell tossed goose eggs for the duration. But the three runs scored by the Orioles (aided by three walks from McDowell) was enough to defeat the Indians 3-1.  Baltimore improves to 3-1 while the Indians drop to 1-3.

In a close one between a couple of cellar-dwellers, the New York Yankees (now a respectable 2-2) came from behind to win a close one in 10.  The Tigers (now 0-4) were an out away from picking up their first win when relief pitcher Tom Timmerman uncorked a wild pitch to score Ron Woods from third.  Woods was 3 for 5 with a clutch stolen base in the 9th and a walk-off game winning hit in the 10th.  The Yankee fans who headed for the exits early to get a jump on the Major Deegan traffic missed an exciting finish.  For the Tigers, a fine outing by Mickey Lolich was for naught.

Vada Pinson went 4 for 5 with 2 homeruns and slender Eddie Leon slammed his third homerun of the tournament as the Cleveland Indians pounded the New York Yankees 9-3.  Rich Hand scattered 10 hits for the complete game win. 

At the end of intra-division play, the Yankees and Indians both stand at 2-3. 

Next up, the 3-1 Orioles (McNally 1-0, 0.00 ERA) take on the 2-2 Senators (Bosman 0-1, 3.38 ERA).

Roberto Pena and Eddie Leon – the two unlikely homerun leaders in the American League so far.  Eddie never smiled.  I mean never.  It was an art form with him.  Roberto, on the other hand, managed to muster an occasional grin after being traded from the San Diego Padres, where he looked downright surly (I assume on purpose).  C’mon guys, lighten up. There’s life after baseball . . . sometimes.

Attack of the slappies!! Roberto hit 13 HRs in 1907 ABs, Eddie 24 in 1862. But he hit 10 in 1970, which I have to admit caught me completely off guard. The Indians were always messing with their fences, and the Mistake By The Lake was easy pickins in the early seventies. Only explanation I would have for his strange power surge. Maybe he was especially serious that year. Haha.

There's luck in tabletop and computer baseball games. It should even out over the course of a lengthy season. Eddie and Roberto have hit one of those lucky streaks. I guarantee your their cards are not loaded (and neither, I assume, are the computer dice).

Is there similar luck in baseball? That extra millimeter angle on the bat that permits the ball to carry over the wall (accompanied by a dead pull resulting from a curve that hung because the pitcher forgot to fix that hangnail the night before)? That ain't skill. If not luck, then what? Divine intervention?

Who knows. One of the guys on our high school baseball game had NO power. Zilch. Our batgirls had bigger guns. Oh, he got his share of singles, and maybe the occasional double resulting from misplayed singles, and he was a solid outfielder with an accurate throwing arm. But no juice in that lumber . . . except once. Damned if he didn't jerk two homers to left in back-to-back at bats. Perhaps he just had that particular pitcher's number. I faced a few that like, I suppose. Gene Tenace managed a similar feat against Gary Nolan in the 1972 World Series. He had only 5 homeruns in 227 bats during the regular season that year.

But Eddie and Roberto have managed to hit their puny chance THREE times. I think both should take a trip to Vegas before inter-division play starts.

And check out the poses struck by these two Behemoths of Bust.  Eddie demonstrates his specialty, the sacrifice bunt, while Roberto appears to be contemplating something known only to him at the time.  Could he be pretending to check out the snazzy, Peter Max-inspired graphics crowning this year's cards?  Has he been momentarily distracted by a maintenance worker in the upper-deck who seems to be dangerously close to taking a header into the loge section?  Could he be wondering whether Topps will make him don a neutral hat just in case he's traded before the printing deadline.  ("Hey, whaddya mean, 'just in case'?  You guys know something I don't?")  I'm dying to see what's written on the back of his card.

Baltimore's pitchers continue to dominate, as Dave McNally tosses his second shutout in as many starts.  McNally overcame some early troubles, including a no-out, bases-loaded second inning, which was by far the best chance the Senators had all afternoon.  Brooks Robinson provided the offense for the Orioles with 3 hits in 4 at bats, including two doubles, two RBIs and a solo blast.

The Orioles finish up intra-division play 4-1 (a half game behind the division-leading Red Sox), while the Senators fall to 2-3.

Next up, the 4-0 Red Sox (Culp 1-0, 2.00 ERA) take on the 0-4 Tigers (Cain 0-1, 12.27 ERA, or Wilson 0-0, 0.00 ERA).
