The underdog Orioles got off to a great start in the top of the first inning of the 1966 World Series.
Eventual MVP and Triple Crown winner Frank Robinson hit a 2-run HR and Brooks Robinson followed it with a solo shot. It was suddenly 3-0 Baltimore!
Dave McNally could not get out of the 3rd inning but Moe Drabowski pitched 6-plus innings of relief to preserve the win.
Final score: Orioles 5, Dodgers 2. The Dodgers did not score again in the series.
