4-0 Record Ranks With Best Starts in Orioles History

1970 Baltimore Orioles
The Orioles are now one win away from matching the best start in team history. The 1970 O’s won their first five games in what ended up being a World Series season.

The Orioles started 4-0  before losing their first game on six other occasions: 1964, 1973, 1985, 1996, 1997, and 2011.

For what it’s worth, the O’s made the postseason in three of those six seasons, winning the Wild Card in 1996, and winning the division in 1973 and 1997. Of course, the 2011 Orioles lost 93 games and had a 7-20 record in July after starting out 4-0.
