Retro Orioles recap: Frank Robinson’s walk-off home run lifts O’s past Royals

This game took place on May 7, 1970. It is being recapped today as part of Camden Chat’s retro recap series while MLB is on hold due to coronavirus.

The Baltimore Orioles were down. As the Kansas City Royals found out, they were not out.

A team rarely is when Frank Robinson gets a chance to say something about it.

Robinson continued his torrid start to the season with one his most dramatic hits of this 1970 campaign, hitting a three-run home run off former Baltimore hurler Moe Drabowsky as the Orioles sent the home crowd home happy with a 7-6 win over the Royals.
