On June 13, 1999, the Braves led the NL East. The Orioles trailed in the AL East by 10.5 games and were 11 games under .500.
It only makes sense, then, that the Braves would get swept in convincing fashion.
Yes, the Orioles finished off a three-game dismantling of the eventual National League champions with the worst beating in the history of the Braves franchise.
Cal Ripken (pictured) led the assault with six hits, six RBI, and five runs scored in his six trips to the place. Will Clark threw in two home runs as the Orioles scored in every inning except the second and the eighth.
Meanwhile, the Braves offense was nonexistent, managing only one run—and that came off a Ryan Klesko sacrifice fly.
Braves starter John Smoltz gave up seven runs in just 2.1 innings of work, and four members of the bullpen each gave up two runs or more also.
See? Compared to this, Atlanta's Monday night loss to San Diego is just a bump in the road—perhaps the road to a division title.
