    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Final Score
        Baltimore 3 Philadelphia 2
        Baltimore leads series 2-1

      • Philadelphia Phillies second basemen Joe Morgan, at age 39, became the second oldest man in World Series history to hit a home run when he homered leading off the bottom of the third. The oldest man was left-fielder Enos Slaughter of the 1956 New York Yankees against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Slaughter was 40 years, 5 months old at the time.

      • Long-time Baltimore Orioles pitcher Jim Palmer won the game and set a World Series record for the longest span between World Series wins for an individual pitcher. He picked up his first win in 1966, so the span was 17 years. He was also the first pitcher to win a World Series game in three decades and the only Oriole to play in all their World Series appearances (1966, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1979 and 1983) during the 17-year span.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (on his seventh inning error that allowed the winning run to score)
        Philadelphia Shortstop Ivan DeJesus: I was supposed to catch the ball and didn't catch it.

      • (on throwing out Philadelphia second baseman Joe Morgan trying to steal in the seventh inning)

        Baltimore Catcher Rick Dempsey: Almost everything time he's been on, he's made an attempt to go on the first or second pitch. I was aware he was going to go. It was perfect for the situation because I wasn't going to call anything but fastballs to (Third baseman) Mike Schmidt. (Reliever) Sammy (Stewart) was throwing the best fastball I've seen him throw in quite a while. He took the fastball on the inside; I was lucky enough to get it away, and (second baseman) Richie (Dauer) was right there for the tag.

      • (on the nickname that was given the lower third of the Orioles lineup)
        Baltimore Catcher Rick Dempsey: That started as a joke in the clubhouse. A couple of sportswriters, and I don't know who they were, kind of took it demeaningly. They chalked up the stats for the first game and a couple of games in the playoffs and said, well, those three guys are really a load to carry for the rest of the team. That we can't really do much of anything.
        Todd Cruz couldn't hit and Richie Dauer couldn't hit. I only got two hits in the playoffs. But, you know, only ignorant guys would say something like that. They have to see you over the course of a season. Richie Dauer is one of the best clutch hitters we have on this team. He doesn't always hit for a high average, maybe .270 or .280. But he's always been a good clutch hitter. That may be a good average for me, but for him, I wouldn't consider it a good average.
        This has been the first year that Rich has struggled. I don't know much about Todd Cruz. I know that he's the kind of guy who goes up and tries to hit the ball out of the ballpark. He's capable of doing that. Three Stooges? Come on. ... It does put a little pressure on us, because it draws attention to us. But it doesn't inspire us. Playing in the World Series in inspiration enough.
