Why the Orioles won: With Jim Palmer, Wally Bunker and Dave McNally throwing three straight shutouts, it's hard to lose.

Why the Dodgers lost: Running into three straight shutouts in the high-mound era was tough, but six errors in Game 2 added embarrassment to a sense of frustration.

Memorable moment: Dodgers center fielder Willie Davis committed three errors in the fifth inning of Game 2, undermining Sandy Koufax.

Key stat: .192, the Dodgers' team-wide slugging percentage as they eked out a mere two runs in the series.
