July 18, 1985: Royals (50-39) at Orioles (42-45)

The Baltimore Orioles came in to the game in quite a tailspin, but they were able to snap their 5 game slide and nipped the Kansas City Royals in 12 innings 4 to 3 at MEMORIAL STADIUM in a hard fought contest. 

The score was knotted at 3 after nine innings. Baltimore came out the victor in the 12th inning. Cal Ripken smacked a single. Two outs later Mike Young came to bat and lined a base-hit resulting in an exciting win for Baltimore and a wild post-game celebration by the home town fans. Baltimore and Kansas City each finished the night with 13 hits. 

Don Aase(2-2) got the win allowing 2 runs in 4 innings. Dan Quisenberry(0-6) was tagged with the loss in relief. He gave up 1 run and 2 hits in 2/3 of an inning. 

'It felt really nice to get this win,' Aase said. 'I kind of dictated the game. It's what I get paid to do. It worked out this time.'
