July 18th In Red Sox Vs. Orioles History

Still 47 runs short of 10,000 all time vs. the O's. With 11 games left against them in '11, there's a good chance we'll reach the mark in September. And nobody will notice but me. I mean us.

We've played 'em 11 times on July 18th. We beat them in 1916, 1917, 1948 (twice), 1954, 1967, and 1969. We lost in 1918, 1947, 1954, and 1996.

In '16, their catcher, Hank Severeid, got bowled over at the plate by winning pitcher Babe Ruth in a 4-3 Red Sox win at Fenway.

In '17, the same dude made some bad plays in the field, leading to a 1-0 Red Sox win in St. Louis.

In '18, Dave Davenport held the future World Series champs to five hits in a 6-3 St. Louis win at Fenway.

In '47, Ted WIlliams went 5-5 with 2 dongs and the Sox had 17 hits, but lost 9-8 in St. Louis.

In '48, the Browns led 4-0 in both games, but Boston came back twice, winning 12-5 and 7-6 at Fenway.

In '54, Russ Kemmerer took a no-hitter in the 7th in his first major league start, ending up with a one-hit shutout and a 4-0 Red Sox win in game one at Fenway. In game two, Frank Sullivan walked and balked in eighth inning runs and the Browns won 4-1.

In '67, the Sox knocked out Dave McNally in the second, and Jim Lonborg got the complete game 6-2 win at Memorial Stadium, Boston's 777th over the Orioles franchise.

In '69, Providence's Ray Jarvis went all the way and drove in 2 runs in a 6-1 Sox win over the AL-dominating Orioles at Fenway. From retrosheet's play-by-play, top 8th: "Buford hit ball into rightfield stands; Conigliaro fell intostands but came up without the ball; Stewart hesitated on the call and Buford passed a confused and hesitating May between 1B and 2B; May was called out and Buford circled the bases, May getting no further than 2B; After argument, Buford was credited with single and RBI and May with run scored even though he never circled bases"

In '96, Hoiles and Surhoff homered and David Wells got the 6-3 win for Baltimore at Fenway.

Sox @ Orioles, 7:05.
