Orioles 3, Brewers 2
MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Cal Ripken stroked a run-scoring single in the sixth inning to help the Baltimore Orioles snap a four-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday night.
Winner Scott McGregor, 6-6, pitched seven innings of seven-hit ball before giving way to Dan Aase, who gained his second save. McGregor struck out four and walked one.
Lee Lacy started Baltimore’s rally in the sixth with a two-out single off Danny Darwin, 6-6. Jim Dwyer followed with a check-swing single that advanced Lacy to third.
Ripken then lined a sharp single to center to chase Darwin and give the Orioles a 3-2 lead.
Milwaukee took a 1-0 lead in the second when Ted Simmons connected on a 1-1 pitch from Scott McGregor for his second home run of the season.
The Orioles came back with two runs in the fourth. Wayne Gross opened with a double and Larry Sheets followed with a single. Gross scored and Sheets went to third on the play when right fielder Mark Brouhard’s throw sailed over catcher Charlie Moore’s head between home and third base. One out later, Sheets raced home on Lenn Sakata’s suicide-squeeze bunt.
Milwaukee came back with a run in its half of the fourth when Earnest Riles led off with a triple and Cecil Cooper doubled.
Darwin gave up 10 hits, walked four and struck out five over 5 2-3 innings.
