Oct. 7, 1979, sports So much for the playoffs.

The Angels' first taste of postseason ended bitterly thanks to Scott McGregor, who pitched a shutout and sent the Orioles into the World Series.

Baltimore won Game 4, 8-0, and would face the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"There's been more spirit on this club than any I ever was associated with," said Nolan Ryan, who was a free agent.

"We'll be back," third baseman Carney Lansford said.
