Orioles Lose 21st Straight Game

United Press International

The Baltimore Orioles, who only five years ago won the World Series, today set an American League mark of 21 straight defeats by dropping a 4-2 decision to the Minnesota Twins.

Kent Hrbek hit a two-run homer for Minnesota and John Moses added a two-run double, sending the Orioles within two games of tying the modern major-league record for most consecutive defeats. The 1961 Philadelphia Phillies of the National League lost 23 straight.
