May 24, 1985 Game 493: Orioles (16-23) at Angels (21-19)

John Shelby brought out the big bat today as he would club 2 home-runs and drive in 3.  The Orioles would route the Angels 12-4. He would hit a solo homer off of Rafael Lugo in the 1st and a 2 run homer in the 9th off of Luis Sanchez.

Mike Flanagan would make his 1st start of the season and he looked a little rusty in the 1st.  He would walk 1 and give up 2 hits and one would score.  He would settle in until the 5th, when the Angels hit him for 3 more runs.  But the seasoned veteran fought through it and would go 8 innings and give up 4 runs on 8 hits and struck-out 6.  He picks up the win and is now (1-0)

The Final Score 12-4 Orioles
