Larry Sheets' bases loaded double in the 6th gave the Orioles the extra runs they would need to hold off the A's. Sheets would go 3-5 with those 2 RBI. Mike Heath would go 4-5 for the A's.
The A's tried to rally in the bottom of the 9th. They would have the bases loaded and 1-out. But Tippy Martinez was able to get Carney Lansford to bounce into a doubleplay to end the game.
Denny Martinez get the win. He is now (4-3). Bill Krueger takes the loss. He is now (1-4). Tippy Martinez gets his 1 SV of the season.
The Final Score 6-5 Orioles
