Nate Snell, 1987 Topps #86


This Day in Orioles History: June 29, 1985

Orioles 16, Red Sox 4 at Fenway Park

Righthander Nate Snell picked up the third save of his career, and it was an easy one. Snell, who had made his major league debut the previous year at the age of thirty-one, pitched the last three innings in relief of winner Dennis Martinez. The Bird bats doubled their run total in an eight-run sixth inning in which they sent thirteen men to the plate. Lee Lacy and Floyd Rayford each drove in four runs as the O's broke a four-game losing streak.
