FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»August 30, 1969:
Merv Rettenmund drives in three runs to lead the Orioles to a 6–3 win over the Angels. The O's score their last run on a single by Brooks Robinson in the 7th and three consecutive passed balls by Jose Azcue which ties the American League record for catchers. He is the first backstop on the 20th-C list not to be catching Hoyt Wilhelm, though Wilhelm comes in to relief Vern Geishert in the 8th.
