Why the Orioles won: Mike Boddicker (Game 2) and Scott McGregor (Game 5) tossed complete-game gems as the O's held the Phillies to a .228 OBP.

Why the Phillies lost: Using three starters to the O's four put rookie Charles Hudson in Games 2 and 5, losing both while giving up four HRs in 8 1/3 IP.

Memorable moment: O's skipper Joe Altobelli sent up four straight pinch-hitters in the sixth inning of Game 4, scoring two to take the lead.

Key stat: 1-for-20. Mike Schmidt's line for the series, with no walks or extra-base hits.
