On August 26, 1985, Baltimore Oriole Eddie Murray went 4-for-5 with 3 home runs and 9 RBI in a 17-3 victory over the California Angels. Murray is considered one of the greatest Orioles of all time, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003. Murray is also one of just six MLB players in history to be a member of the 3,000 hit and 500 home run club.
