The Baltimore Orioles moved one game away from the World Series with an extra-inning victory over the Minnesota Twins, 4-3.

April 9, 1968

Civil disorders took another Baltimore Oriole out of the line-up temporarily today and raised doubts that the American League club would have its home opener Wednesday against Oakland. Mark Belanger, a Baltimore shortstop who is in the Maryland Air National Guard, reported today to his unit, the 175th Tactical Fighter Group, at nearby Middle River,

Perhaps the American League pennant flying over in center field, but recently guests at Memorial Stadium get the jitters in late innings situations and hand the game over to the defending AL champions.

The Senators’ new lefthanded pitcher, Frank Bertaina, dropped by the Nats’ clubhouse for treatment of his ailing back before yesterday’s doubleheader and spoke wistfully of the Baltimore Orioles. “When you leave a club like that it’s like saying goodbye to $8 or $10,000 World Series money,” said Bertaina, who was traded to Washington along with

The Senators landed slugging first baseman Mike Epstein, the problem guy for the Baltimore Orioles, and lefthanded pitcher Frank Bertaina last night.

The Orioles, the defending American League champions,

May 18, 1967

Four players, pitchers Pete Richert and Darold Knowles and infielders Ed Brinkman and Bob Saverine, are slated for two weeks of Army duty this summer. Ordinarily, the players “pull” their duty in the off season, but there has been such a hue and cry in Congress about athletes getting special privileges that the players will

Nats Expect to Trim Trio at First

April 21, 1967

The old vaudeville gag about “Who’s on First?” has a counterpart on the Senators. Three Men on a Horse probably would be a better title for the battle among Bob Chance, Ken Harrleson and Dick Nen for the right to represent the Senators at first base. As C-Day (cutdown) approaches, all three earnest applicants for
