On this day in 1983, Eddie Murray sealed the Baltimore Orioles World Series championship dream with a very impressive outing.
In Game 5 of the match-up, Murray and his Orioles entered the game with a 3-1 lead over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Murray proceeded to go 3-for-4 on the night while scoring 2 runs, driving in 3, and crushing 2 monster home runs. It was his offense that was the difference, as the O’s blanked the Phillies 5-0 en route to their World Series title.
A classic performance by one of the game’s greatest hitters!
Happy Anniversary Mr. Murray!!!
