Mike Flanagan from the Chronology
Jun 13, 1992 - Detroit takes a 7-0 lead over the Orioles into the 8th inning then score 8 times. Dan Gladden makes all 3 outs in the frame against reliever Mike Flanagan grounding out then grounding into a DP. The Birds score in the 9th at Detroit to avoid the shutout losing 15-1.
Jul 17, 1991 - In a 15-inning 9-8 loss to the Royals Sam Horn of the Orioles becomes the first non-pitcher to strike out 6 consecutive times in a single game. Pitcher Carl Weilman of the Browns was the only other player to have the dubious distinction performing the feat on August 25 1913. Striking out six times labels a batter a "Horn" a term Mike Flanagan will coin in the July 29 "Sports Illustrated."
Jul 13, 1991 - The Orioles defeat the A's 2-0 on a combined no-hitter by pitchers Bob Milacki‚ Mike Flanagan‚ Mark Williamson‚ and Gregg Olson. It is only the second time in history that 4 pitchers have combined to throw a no-hitter. On September 28‚ 1975‚ Vida Blue‚ Glenn Abbott‚ Paul Lindblad‚ and Rollie Fingers turned the trick for Oakland against the California Angels. Starter Bob Milacki is lifted in the 6th after Willie Wilson smashes a ball off the pitcher's index finger.
Aug 31, 1987 - The Blue Jays trade minor leaguer Oswaldo Peraza and a player to be named later to the Orioles for veteran lefthander Mike Flanagan then release Phil Niekro to make room for Flanagan on the roster.
Sep 5, 1984 - Cal Ripken's first-inning error lets in a score and that's it as the Tigers beat Baltimore 1-0. Juan Berenguer (8-9) is the winner with Willie Hernandez picking up his 28th save. Mike Flanagan goes all the way in the loss. Detroit's magic number is now 15.
Jun 17, 1984 - At Yankee Stadium with one out in the 8th inning Gary Roenicke hits a grand slam for the O's as they beat New York 6-2. Mike Flanagan benefits but he's not the only winner as the home run makes Anne Sommers of College Park MD a million dollars. Ms. Sommers had entered the Equitable Bank's Sweepstakes.
Sep 2, 1983 - Mike Flanagan of the Orioles wins his 13th straight over the Twins but it is not easy. Ken Singleton's solo HR in the 9th breaks up a pitching duel with Frank Viola and gives the Orioles a 1-0 win. The streak goes back to August 5 1978.
Sep 3, 1979 - The Orioles win a pair from Toronto 2-1 in 11 innings and 5-1. Murray provides the game-winning hit in the bottom of the 11th. Martinez (9-2) is the winner. Mike Flanagan is the winner in the nitecap the major's first 20-game winner this year.
