The Dodger would come out and grab the early lead with a run in the top of the 2nd as Pedro Guerrero would homer. Dodgers would add another in the 3rd as Guerrero again would drive in a run with a single scoring Steve Sax. The Orioles would tie it up in the 4th as they get another homer, this time a 2 run shot from Floyd Rayford.
Score would remain 2-2 until the bottom of the 6th. Eddie Murray would double with 2 outs and Gary Roenicke would again come up big with a RBI single to left center to give the Orioles a 3-2 lead. The Orioles bullpen would keep the Dodger bats at bay and secure the 3-2 victory and give the Orioles a 2-1 series advantage.
