It's Erickson Week Against Mariners

May 17, 1997|From Associated Press

Scott Erickson won his fifth consecutive start, pitching into the ninth inning Friday night as the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Seattle Mariners, 6-3, at Seattle.

Erickson (7-1) defeated the Mariners for the second time in five days. He gave up five hits and left with runners on first and second and no outs in the ninth.

Erickson gave up one hit after the third inning. He walked none and struck out four. Randy Myers got the final three outs, giving up a two-run double to Jay Buhner.

Dennis Martinez (1-4), who talked about retiring after losing to Erickson, 9-5, in Baltimore last Sunday, failed for the sixth consecutive time to win his 242nd game.

Martinez, 42, is hoping to become the winningest Latin American pitcher, surpassing Juan Marichal's 243 victories.

Roberto Alomar, who was 0 for 8 in a two-game series in Anaheim, gave the Orioles the lead in the third.

After one-out singles by Lenny Webster, Mike Bordick and Brady Anderson loaded the bases, Alomar hit a two-run single. Rafael Palmeiro had an RBI single with two outs for a 3-0 lead.

Alex Rodriguez had an RBI double in Seattle third.

The Orioles made it 4-1 in the fourth on singles by Jeffrey Hammonds and Webster and Bordick's sacrifice fly.

Cal Ripken Jr. doubled home a run in the eighth, and Webster homered in the ninth.
