I have to write something before your comment gets taken down (which I pray will be soon). That's disgusting and rude. Please do not post comments like that in the future (including the one on the next blog post). That kind of language is completely inappropriate, and unwelcome here.

Orioles scored on an error.

That game along with the Seaver-Carlton duels are the best opening day pitching contests I remember.

@18
Are you for real?

Baseball is my escape from the bull shit that surrounds all of us, and when I click on Baseball-Reference the last thing I want to see is that fat bitchy pig Rosanne Barr looking at me. I understand guys that this is a business, but don't be tone deaf to who it is your customers are. Our everyday lives are chalk full of big mouth bitches that know everything. From the ladies at work, to the bitch at the DMV, to the pig at the bank, or that cunt at the child support office. Sadly some of your customers are married to a big mouth bitchy cunt like Rosanne, and those guys are the ones that really need the escape. I wanted to mention that it's not just women now days that are big mouth bitchy cunts, there are a lot of men out there that have lost their masculinity and look, speak, and act like a bitch, and if you've ever been trapped in an office for 8 hours with one of these 2 ball bitch queens that are popping up more and more around the country then you'll understand. No, I'm not talking about homosexuals, many of these 2 ball pussies are married, but about 5 or 6 years ago they started to walk like a woman, and they have bubble butts and they sashay when they walk and they are married to Rosanne Barr types and they brag about their wives. And don't call me a woman hater, put a picture of Sarah Palin with a Snickers bar, or a picture of Charo's big tits holding a Snickers bar, or maybe the girl from Dukes of Hazzard, but not Ellen from the Ellen show. Please do us a huge favor and get rid of the stupid bitch Rosanne Snickers ad on the home page.

That was one of 11 Opening Day starts by Seaver that his team won -- the most starts for a winning O.D. team by any pitcher since at least 1920 -- and one of 10 Opening Day starts by Carlton that his team lost -- the most starts for a losing O.D. team by any pitcher since at least 1920. Seaver and Carlton dueled each other on Opening Days five times (1973, 1974, 1975, 1981, 1983) with Seaver's team winning four. It would have been five for five for Seaver's teams, but in '74 Tug McGraw was pitching to preserve a one-run lead with one out in the bottom of the ninth when Mike Schmidt hit a two-run walkoff homer.

The game was scoreless through 8. Dick Allen homered in the top of the 9th, and Bob Oliver replied in kind in the home half, setting the stage for Mayberry's heroics in the 11th.
