3-Minute Baseball: 1970 World Series

Both Baltimore and Cincinnati cruised to division titles in the 1970 season, with the O’s (108-54) winning their division by 15 games and the Reds (102-60) taking theirs by 14.5. Both teams would pull off sweeps in their respective League Championship Series, but it was Brooks Robinson’s Baltimore team that rode its momentum through the World Series, taking the pennant four games to one. Robinson had a World Series for the ages, winning the MVP with a robust batting average of .429. He also broke the record for total bases in a World Series with 17, tied the record for most hits in one game with four, tied his teammate Paul Blair for the most hits in a five-game Series with nine, and also played top-notch defense over at the hot corner.
