Young was really in 'the zone'. He doubled in the 6th inning, smacked a three-run homer in the 7th inning and lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 10th of the season) in the 8th inning. Baltimore kept the scorekeepers busy in the 4th inning with 4 runs on 4 hits, the 8th inning which saw them plate 5 runs on 5 hits and the 9th inning when they had 4 runs on 5 hits. Offensively, Baltimore was a juggernaut. They scored in 6 separate innings. The winning pitcher was Ken Dixon(3-2) who allowed 1 run in 5 innings. Gene Nelson(1-2) was tagged with the loss. He served up 3 homeruns in his 5 innings. Young was in a good mood after the game, 'I'm just seeing and hitting the ball real well now. I made some adjustments last week and they are paying off. That's what this game is about. making adjustments as the season goes along.' KANSAS CITY AT CLEVELAND Royals.......... 0 0 1 0 0 0 4 3 0 - 8 12 1 Indians......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 - 5 14 0 Win:Jackson(1-3) Loss:Heaton(0-7) Save:Quisenberry(7th) Homeruns- J.Sundberg-2(5th), T.Bernazard(2nd), G.Vukovich(1st) Jim Sundberg slammed 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI at MUNICIPAL STADIUM as the Kansas City Royals beat the Cleveland Indians 8 to 5. Sundberg had a good day at the plate. He cracked a solo homerun in the 3rd inning, slapped a single in the 5th inning and clubbed a three-run home run (his 5th of the season) in the 8th inning. Kansas City managed 12 in their victory. Danny Jackson(1-3) allowed 2 runs in 6 and 1/3 innings, and picked up the victory. Jackson got help from Dan Quisenberry who was credited with his 7th save. Neal Heaton(0-7) was the losing pitcher. He pitched 6 and 2/3 innings and surrendered 9 hits and 1 walk. With this win, Kansas City has a 12-20 record. They have been 4-6 lately. With the loss, the Cleveland ballclub's record is 9-24.

Butcher(3-2) was very good in the win. He allowed only 7 hits and 2 walks in 9 innings seeing his ERA drop from 4.14 to 3.52. Minnesota finished with 10 hits in the victory. Walt Terrell(3-3) was the loser. He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 9 hits and 3 walks in 6 and 2/3 innings. TEXAS AT NEW YORK Rangers......... 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 3 12 2 Yankees......... 2 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 4 12 1 Win:Righetti(2-1) Loss:Schmidt(0-2) Homeruns- T.Dunbar(1st), D.Winfield(5th) 24,588 fans watched an exciting game at YANKEE STADIUM. The New York Yankees topped the Texas Rangers by the slimmest of margins, 4 to 3. The score was tied at 3 after nine. New York won the hard fought contest in the 13th inning. After two outs Dave Winfield smashed a solo-shot out of the park (his 5th of the season) giving New York the victory as 24,588 happy fans celebrated wildly. Both teams ended up with 12 on the afternoon. Dave Righetti(2-1) got the win allowing no runs in 2/3 of an inning. Dave Schmidt(0-2) suffered the loss in relief. He gave up 1 hit and 1 walk in 1 and 2/3 innings.

Atlanta delivered all the runs required in the 8th inning with 3 runs on 2 hits. After an out was recorded, Claudell Washington started the attack as he drew a walk. Paul Zuvella was next and he laced a single. Dale Murphy then belted a three-run homer (his 9th of the season). The game was a scoreless duel until the 8th inning. The victory went to Johnson(1-0) who went the distance allowing 2 runs. Kevin Gross(2-2) was hit with the loss. He surrendered 2 runs and 7 hits in 7 and 1/3 innings.

Lynch(2-0), allowing 4 runs for the game, picked up the victory. The loss was charged to Frank Dipino(4-4) in relief. He was knocked around pretty good, giving up 5 runs in 2 innings.

We have a great pitching match up tonight. Mike Scott vs. John Tudor...

And here are the lineups...St. Louis will play

Coleman - LF
Herr - 2b
McGee - Cf
Clark - 1b
Van Slyke - Rf
Pendleton - 3b
Porter - C
Smith - SS
Tudor - P

Houston will counter with:

Doran - 2b
Cruz - Lf
Bass - Cf
Davis - 1b
Thon - ss
Garner - 3b
Mumphrey - Rf
Spilman - C
Scott - P

And here we go with the first pitch...


There's a high pop fly to the outfield
Kevin Bass moves to his left
He makes the catch
Wait, he bobbles it!
Bass grabs it with his bare
hand for the out
One down for St. Louis
Tommy Herr is still in the on-deck circle
and Willie McGee is looking
for a bat in the dugout

Herr swings and hits one down the line
It'll be in there for extra bases
Mumphrey plays it off the wall on a hop
Herr is heading for second
Mumphrey turns and fires
Herr slides head first...
and beats the throw
A whistling two-bagger for Tommy Herr

It's a shallow fly by McGee
Bass runs in, calls for it
He makes the catch with
a snap of his glove
McGee is out
That's the second out of the inning

Clark takes the pitch...
That one is low for a ball... WAIT
The umpire says that one caught the knees
Clark's outta there
That's three outs here in
the top of the first
At the end of one half inning,
for St. Louis
No runs, one hit, no errors
and one man left on base
Houston is coming to bat

Swung on and chopped down
the third base line
Pendleton stabs at it
He's got it!
Over to first...
GOT HIM!
What a nice play by Terry Pendleton
Houston with one away
Tudor steps off the mound as
he waits for Jose Cruz to
come to the plate

Cruz swings and misses
STRIKE THREE!
Tudor strikes out Jose Cruz
And there's two away

Swung on and topped toward short
Smith comes in
Backhands it
Over to first
Not in time!
Infield single by Kevin

Bass watches Tudor move...
He's moving away from the bag
Another throw...
Tudor's five throws over
have been effective
Bass has a small lead now
He must be getting tired
from diving back in!

Routine grounder to short
Smith comes up with it
Over to Clark
Got him!
Score It: 6-3
That's three outs, side retired

Van Slyke pulls this one down the line
Mumphrey is at the warning track
The ball is hooking...
Just foul!
. . . Van Slyke back in the box
And here comes the next pitch
Hard line drive to second
Doran grabs it for the out
Score It: 4
One away in the top of the
2nd for St. Louis

Pendleton hits one on the
ground to the left side
Terry, who moves well,
is motoring to first
Thon wings it quickly to Davis...
OUT by a step
Two down
Mike Scott retires
the first two batters in order

Fastball, just inside...
Looked very close...
Scott's obviously peeved at that call
But Darrell tends to get those calls
He has a great eye and doesn't mind
taking the free ride to first

Porter a few feet off the bag at first
Scott steps away from the mound
Now Porter moves back to first

Hard ground ball to first
Davis trots to the bag
Score It: 3
That's all for St. Louis
After 1 and a half innings
in Houston this evening,
We're scoreless

The batter checks his swing
Here's the appeal
Thon swung, that's strike three
Thon isn't happy at all with that call
That's one away

Ground ball to the left side...
Pendleton scoops it up
Over to first for the putout
Two gone for Houston

Curve in the dirt... and Mumphrey holds up
Looked like he went around from here
But the plate umpire says no
Porter asks the first base ump's opinion
He says Mumphrey went around
Strike three, swinging
1-2-3, nothing across...

Curveball in the dirt
Swung on and missed...Strike three
Spilman fumbles it,
but quickly recovers to tag Tudor
One up, one down here in
the top of the 3rd

Coleman cuts on a curve that
misses in the dirt
That ball is trapped nicely by Spilman
Coleman was badly fooled by Scott's
big breaking curve
STRIKE THREE!
Vince was a little overanxious
Two down
Spilman asks for a new ball
He calls time and trots out to the mound
A conference going on between
Spilman and Scott

Slider pounded into the
ground towards first
It's by the diving Davis...
Doran chasing it down...
There will be no play
It's a base hit

Base hit to center for McGee
Herr is racing towards third...
The throw is going to third...
Herr is safe at third!
And McGee advances to second on the throw

Wait, Spilman calls time
He is looking to the dugout
Now he's signaling for an intentional pass
This will load them up
But Houston now has a force at any base

Smashed to short
Thon comes up with it
Over to Davis
Got him!
Score It: 6-3
That ends the inning for St. Louis
Houston has no runs, one hit and no errors
While St. Louis has no runs,
3 hits and no errors
St. Louis has now stranded 5 baserunners

It's popped up into foul territory
Tommy Herr is under it
He puts it away
Score It: 4
One up, one down for Houston

Swung on and popped up
Pendleton is waiting...
And that's an easy out
Two down
Tudor gets the first two batters
here in the bottom of the 3rd

Swung on and hit sharply to third
Pendleton plays it on one bounce
Over to Clark...
Out of there!
That wraps up the inning for Houston
By the way, Houston is 3 and
7 in their last ten games

Pendleton hits a screamer at Phil Garner
Garner picks it up and fires to first
The throw pulls Davis off the bag
Davis swipes with the glove

Pendleton is out!
Nice play by Davis
And there's one away

There's a fly ball to Kevin Bass
Bass circles under it...
He makes the play
No score with two away
Let's check some other scores as well

Montreal with the lead over
San Diego 4 to 1
New York clipping San Francisco 4 to 0
Philadelphia leads Los Angeles 2 to 1
Rawley and Valenzuela currently dueling
Cincinnati is edging Pittsburgh 3 to 2
Browning and Tunnell currently dueling
Atlanta is giving it to Chicago 6 to 1

Ozzie Smith offers at the curveball,
but checks his swing
Oh, Smith couldn't get the
bat out of the way
It's a soft line drive to
Bill Doran for the out
Smith never even left the batter's box
Once again it's three up and three down
as Scott continues to mow
the Cardinals down
No hits for St. Louis
Larry, as ol' Country Slaughter said,
"If you don't get on first,
you can't score a run!"

It's a smash over short
Smith leaps
Just over his outstretched glove
Cruz makes a wide turn at first
He will hold at first
The ball comes in quickly

Bass maneuvers to hit behind the runner
Bass misses the pitch!
The steal attempt...
The throw by Porter...
It's high...
The catch...
The tag...
STOLEN BASE!

Bass swings on a ball in on his fists
It results in a pop up to third
Pendleton is under it...
A few steps to his right...
One hands it for the out
Bass looked bad on that pitch

Fastball, belt high, away...
Davis goes after it...
There's a fly ball to Van Slyke
Van Slyke is gliding under it...
He flags it down on the run
With two gone, Scoreless game
in the bottom of the 4th

Apparently Tudor has been instructed
to put Mister Dickie Thon on...
He has done just that...Thon
trots down to first

Garner pokes out a soft fly into center
McGee will have to come a long way
He's really moving...
Willie dives...
He slides.... and has...Wait!!
The umpire waits to see if he holds on...
He's out!
What a great play by Willie McGee!
My, oh my
Tudor would have to agree
That's it for Houston
Houston has no runs, 2 hits and no errors
While St. Louis has no runs,
3 hits and no errors
Houston has now left 3 runners stranded

Sharp breaking curveball...
Tudor reaches for it...

Beautiful play by Jerry Mumphrey!
Two down
Scott retires the first
two St. Louis batters

Scott misses low on that one

He should have dove back
Almost got caught

A slider by Scott
McGee gets good wood on it...
Bass back-pedals quickly...
Up with his glove...
Out!
Three down for St. Louis
After 4 and a half innings, Scoreless game
Say, Larry, get me what Al Hrabosky has
That pizza he's chomping on in
the next booth looks mighty good!

Breaking ball...
It darts down and out
as Mumphrey swings way over it
He was fooled completely
Porter loses it momentarily,
but now finds the handle and tags
Jerry as he was heading for the dugout

It's a high pop-up in back of short
Smith is under it
Waiting..Waiting...
My, this one's a "major league" pop-up
Smith snags it for the out
Two up, two down here in
the bottom of the 5th

Scott swings and misses
STRIKE THREE!
Tudor strikes out Mike Scott
That does it for the Astros

Spilman points down at the
first base umpire
The ump says he went around

Scott isn't happy at all with that call

Now he zips a quick throw to first...
Did he get him?...
No says the umpire
That was close

There he goes!
Here's the peg down...
A very bad throw by Spilman!
It's bouncing away into the outfield
He is not known for his accuracy
Van Slyke moves over to third on the error

It's rapped on the ground...
Through the drawn in infield, past first!
Mumphrey is over
Fields it cleanly
Fires it to second to hold
Pendleton to a single

There's a high pop fly to the outfield
Kevin Bass moves to his left
He makes the catch
Wait, he bobbles it!
Bass grabs it with his bare
hand for the out
That's two away

Pendleton takes his lead
Scott's throws over have been effective
Pendleton has a shorter lead now
He must be getting tired
diving back into the bag

Fastball... just outside
And Smith will take first on the walk
Walk number 5 issued by Scott this evening

Hit to Bass in center
Bass drifts over
It's an easy out
Score It: 8

Thon pops it straight up
over the infield...
And it will be Herr making the play
We head to the 7th...

Slams a sharp grounder to the right side
Herr grabs it...
Throws to first...
OUT!
One gone for Houston in
the bottom of the 8th

There's a line drive in the gap by Doran
That looks like an easy two-bagger

NEWSPAPER GAME STORIES FOR 1985 AMERICAN LEAGUE
Date: 5/11/1985


Code:
NEW YORK AT CALIFORNIA Yankees......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 8 0 Angels.......... 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 3 - 4 7 0 Win:Witt(3-4) Loss:Niekro(4-2) Save:Moore(6th) Homeruns- R.Jackson(7th), B.Grich(2nd) Mike Witt(3-4) and Phil Niekro(4-2) locked horns in a pitcher's duel with Witt and the California Angels coming out on top of the New York Yankees 4 to 0. Witt pitched well for California in their victory. He went 7 innings surrendering 5 hits and 4 walks seeing his ERA drop from 5.77 to 4.97. California managed 7 in their victory. Donnie Moore was credited with his 6th save. TEXAS AT CHICAGO Rangers......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 3 0 White Sox....... 1 0 0 2 1 0 0 0 - 4 9 0 Win:Burns(3-3) Loss:Hooton(3-3) Homeruns- D.Boston(1st) Oscar Gamble had 2 base hits and Britt Burns blanked Texas allowing just 3 hits as the Chicago White Sox defeated the Texas Rangers 4 to 0 at COMISKEY PARK. Burns(3-3) was virtually untouchable. He allowed only 3 hits and 2 walks in 9 innings. Burns whiffed an impressive total of 12 Texas batters reducing his ERA from 4.40 to 3.67. Chicago rapped out 9 hits for the afternoon. Burt Hooton(3-3) took the loss. He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 8 hits and 3 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings. Tony LaRussa was asked about the performance of Burns, 'He had his good stuff out there this afternoon. The fans really get into it when the strikeouts start mounting up - and that seems to give him even more adrenalin.' BOSTON AT CLEVELAND Red Sox......... 2 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 - 3 10 1 Indians......... 0 2 4 0 1 0 0 2 - 9 14 1 Win:Schulze(2-4) Loss:Nipper(4-1) Save:Reed(2nd) Homeruns- B.Buckner(3rd), T.Bernazard-2(4th) Tony Bernazard slammed 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Boston Red Sox by a score of 9 to 3 at MUNICIPAL STADIUM. Bernazard was really 'in the zone'. He cleared the fences for a two-run home run in the 2nd inning, lofted a three-run bomb (his 4th of the season) in the 3rd inning and ripped a base-knock in the 5th inning. Boston was out-hit by Cleveland, 14 hits to 10. The victory went to Don Schulze(2-4) who went 6 innings, allowing 2 runs. Schulze got help from Jerry Reed who earned his 2nd save. Al Nipper(4-1) was tagged with the loss. He was knocked around by Cleveland, allowing 7 hits and 2 walks in 2 and 2/3 innings. 'I just got in the box, looked for a pitch and swung,' Bernazard said. 'That's it' KANSAS CITY AT MILWAUKEE Royals.......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 3 0 Brewers......... 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 - 2 5 1 Win:Higuera(4-3) Loss:Black(3-4) Save:Gibson(3rd) Homeruns- B.Schroeder(1st) At COUNTY STADIUM, the Milwaukee faithful were treated to an intriguing pitcher's duel. Ted Higuera(4-3) finally bested his Kansas City counterpart, Bud Black(3-4), by the score of 2 to 0. Higuera put on a good performance. He gave up just 2 hits and 4 walks in 7 and 1/3 innings improving his ERA from 3.51 to 3.07. The pitchers took over after the 3rd inning as neither team was able to score again. Higuera got help from Bob Gibson who was credited with his 3rd save. The losing pitcher was Black. He surrendered 2 runs and 5 hits in 8 innings. TORONTO AT MINNESOTA Blue Jays....... 2 0 8 0 0 1 0 0 0 - 11 15 0 Twins........... 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 - 3 13 1 Win:Alexander(4-3) Loss:Viola(2-3) Homeruns- R.Smalley(6th) Jesse Barfield had 3 base hits and 3 RBI at METRODOME as the blistering-hot Toronto Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins 11 to 3. Toronto took the lead off Frank Viola in the first inning as they scored 2 runs on 2 base hits. Toronto had a total of 15 hits for the game. Doyle Alexander(4-3) got the win allowing 3 runs in 6 and 1/3 innings. Viola(2-3) was the losing pitcher. He got hit hard, allowing 8 hits and 3 walks in 2 and 2/3 innings. It was another victory for Toronto at METRODOME. Now their winning streak stands at 7 games. 'Everything seems to be going right for us' said Bobby Cox. 'I've got the easiest job in the league right now!' DETROIT AT OAKLAND Tigers.......... 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 3 - 6 12 2 A's............. 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 - 3 5 0 Win:Tanana(4-2) Loss:Atherton(0-2) Save:Hernandez(11th) Homeruns- C.Lemon(3rd), B.Garbey(2nd), M.Davis(7th) Frank Tanana had a strong outing and Chet Lemon cracked a homer and had 3 RBI as the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland A's by a score of 6 to 3. Detroit erupted with the game winning runs in the top of the 9th inning with 3 runs on 3 hits. After an out was recorded, Lou Whitaker began the rally when he stroked a single. Alan Trammell was next and he doubled. Kirk Gibson then was walked intentionally. Lemon followed and he smacked a three-run homer (his 3rd of the season). For the game Detroit out-hit Oakland 12 to 5. The win was credited to Tanana(4-2) who went 8 innings allowing 3 runs. Willie Hernandez got the save, his 11th. Keith Atherton(0-2) suffered the loss in relief. He was not very effective, surrendering 4 runs in 2 innings. BALTIMORE AT SEATTLE Orioles......... 0 0 0 3 5 0 0 0 0 - 8 11 0 Mariners........ 0 0 2 0 0 0 1 2 0 - 5 10 0 Win:Flanagan(2-0) Loss:Young(2-4) Save:Aase(3rd) Homeruns- C.Ripken(8th), M.Young(11th), G.Roenicke(4th), J.Presley(4th), G.Thomas(7th), I.Calderon(3rd) Center fielder Gary Roenicke connected with a 'big fly' and had 3 RBI at The Kingdome where the streaking Baltimore Orioles beat the reeling Seattle Mariners 8 to 5. Seattle was unable to recover after Baltimore went ahead in the top of the 4th inning when they tallied 3 runs on 2 hits. The big moment was provided by Roenicke who deflated the mood of the partisan fans when he belted a three-run homer (his 4th of the season). Baltimore had 11 hits for the afternoon. The winning pitcher was Mike Flanagan(2-0) who allowed 3 runs in 7 innings. Flanagan was helped out by Don Aase who recorded his 3rd save. The loss was charged to Matt Young(2-4). He was knocked around, surrendering 6 runs in 4 and 2/3 innings. Baltimore won for the 7th straight time. Chuck Cottier was upset but philosophical about the loss. 'Sometimes you run into a team that's on a roll. This was one of those times.'

Steve Bedrosian(3-3) allowed 5 runs in 7 and 1/3 innings, and picked up the victory. Gene Garber recorded his 3rd save. The loss was charged to Steve Trout(0-2).

New York finished with 11 hits in the victory. Atlee Hammaker(3-3) absorbed the loss. He pitched 4 innings allowing 6 hits and no walks. 'When Fernandez is on like that it is a tough game to play, no doubt about it,' Jim Davenport said. 'He always pitches well against us.'

Steve Yeager came to the plate and drew a walk. After an out was recorded, Steve Sax stepped up to the plate and he lined a single, and an error was also committed, driving in a run.

Philadelphia was out-hit by Los Angeles, 14 hits to 6. Tom Niedenfuer(5-0) got the win allowing no runs in 2 innings. Bobby Castillo recorded the save, his 3rd.

Lee Tunnell(3-1) had a fairly solid outing. He allowed 9 hits and 2 walks in 6 and 2/3 innings. Cincinnati threatened in the 9th but Pittsburgh was able to put down the rally. Tunnell got relief help from Cecilio Guante who gained credit for his 1st save. Tom Browning(3-4) took the loss. He was knocked around by Pittsburgh, allowing 12 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings. 'I didn't have my best stuff but sometimes you just get lucky,' Tunnell said, 'this was one of those times.' ST. LOUIS AT HOUSTON Cardinals....... 0 0 0 0 0 1 3 0 0 - 4 7 0 Astros.......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 1 8 1 Win:Tudor(4-3) Loss:Scott(2-2) Homeruns- G.Davis(7th) Terry Pendleton had 2 base hits and 3 RBI and John Tudor allowed Whitey Herzog to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game at The Astrodome as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Houston Astros 4 to 1. Houston was unable to claim the lead after St. Louis went ahead in the top of the 6th inning plating an isolated run. The game was a scoreless duel until the 6th inning. The winning pitcher was Tudor(4-3) who allowed 1 run for the game. Mike Scott(2-2) was the loser. He was pinned with the loss despite not allowing an earned run in his 6 innings of work.

Winfield had a big day with his bat. He lashed a single in the 1st inning, bombed a two-run dinger (his 6th of the season) in the 3rd inning, doubled which scored a run in the 7th inning and singled scoring a run in the 8th inning. New York had a total of 14 hits for the game. Cowley(4-2) picked up the complete game victory, allowing 1 run. Kirk McCaskill(2-4) was the losing pitcher.

The Texas Rangers snapped a 5 game losing streak and topped the Chicago White Sox by the slimmest of margins, 6 to 5. The game was deadlocked at 3 after nine full innings. Texas won it in the 10th inning. After an out was recorded, Gary Ward was the sparkplug when he laced a base-knock. Steve Buechele was next and he delivered a single. Buechele took second on the throw. Curtis Wilkerson then tripled plating two runs. Tommy Dunbar followed and he hit a sacrifice fly scoring the final run of the inning. Texas finished with 12 hits while Chicago ended up with 9. The win was credited to Dave Stewart(1-0) who went 5 innings allowing 2 runs. Dave Wehrmeister(0-1) suffered the loss in relief.

Boston won the game with a rally in the 9th inning with 2 runs on 3 hits. After an out was recorded, Wade Boggs started the attack as he lined a base-hit. One out later, Tony Armas came up and he blasted a two-run home run (his 6th of the season). The teams had been locked in a scoreless duel until the 6th inning. Mark Clear(4-0) got the win allowing 1 run in 2 innings. Keith Creel(0-2) was tagged with the loss in relief. He pitched 2 and 1/3 innings and surrendered 4 hits and 1 walk.

Milwaukee had the winning rally in the 9th inning when they scored 4 runs on 5 hits. The big moment was provided by Paul Molitor who brought a roar from the partisan COUNTY STADIUM fans when he laced a one-base hit scoring two baserunners. Milwaukee had 14 hits overall, while Kansas City had 10. Jaime Cocanower(1-2) went 2/3 of an inning allowing no runs for the victory. Dan Quisenberry(0-3) was the loser in relief. 'We just wouldn't give up,' Molitor said. 'Much of the credit goes to our fans - they were with us the whole way.'

Minnesota erupted with the game winning runs in the bottom of the 8th inning scoring 2 runs using 2 hits. After an out was recorded, Tom Brunansky initiated the scoring spurt when he laced a single. After another out, Dave Engle came to the plate and cleared the fences for a two-run home run (his 2nd of the season). Minnesota took care of Toronto with no trouble in the 9th. The win went to Blyleven(6-2) who allowed 2 runs in the game. Jimmy Key(3-2) took the loss. He surrendered 4 runs and 8 hits in 7 and 2/3 innings.

Detroit brought 5 runs across the plate in the top of the 3rd inning with the help of 4 hits. That early scoring held up. Detroit managed 7 in their victory. Petry(4-2) was credited with the shutout. Tommy John(1-2) ended up with the loss. He was not very effective, surrendering 5 runs in 2 and 2/3 innings. 'He had his 'A' game today,' Sparky Anderson said of Petry. 'Very impressive performance.' BALTIMORE AT SEATTLE Orioles......... 0 0 0 0 4 1 0 0 0 - 5 6 1 Mariners........ 0 0 4 1 2 0 1 1 - 9 11 0 Win:Swift(1-4) Loss:McGregor(3-3) Save:Thomas(3rd) Homeruns- F.Rayford(6th), A.Davis(7th), S.Owen(2nd) First baseman Alvin Davis hit one over the fence and had 3 RBI and Roy Thomas went 4 strong innings at The Kingdome where the Seattle Mariners beat the Baltimore Orioles 9 to 5. In the 3rd inning Seattle scored 4 runs when they had 3 base hits. The key offensive moment was provided by Davis who made the crowd come alive when he belted a three-run homer (his 7th of the season). Seattle had 11 hits for the afternoon while Baltimore had 6. The win went to Bill Swift(1-4) who allowed 4 runs in 5 innings. Swift got relief help from Thomas who gained credit for his 3rd save. Scott McGregor(3-3) was given the loss. He was knocked around, surrendering 4 runs in 2 and 2/3 innings. The win by Seattle was very good news as they had been 2-8 of late. Now their seasonal record improves to 14-21. The loss by Baltimore interrupted a nice 8-2 recent run.

Rucker and Foley were really whooping it up in the clubhouse after the great come from behind victory. As John Felske noted, 'A win like this one can do wonders for a team's attitude.'

Soto(3-3) went the distance for the shutout. The losing pitcher was Larry McWilliams(0-4). 'I thought it was my best performance in a long time,' said Soto. 'I had good command early in the game. I had my control and composure and everything went well.'

Carter enjoyed a big day at the plate. He doubled bringing in two baserunners in the 1st inning, cracked a two-run shot (his 12th of the season) in the 4th inning and doubled in the 6th inning. New York finished with 12 hits while San Diego ended up with 4. Fernandez(5-2) was the winner allowing 1 run in 8 and 2/3 innings. Andy Hawkins(3-4) ended up with the loss. He was hit hard and gave up 7 hits and 4 walks in 3 and 1/3 innings. Everyone seemed to enjoy the performance of Fernandez - except San Diego. Dick Williams lamented, 'He just was 'on' this afternoon. He was keeping our guys off balance all game. A fine game by a good strikeout pitcher - makes it a fun game for the hometown fans - unfortunately we were the visitors!' SAN FRANCISCO AT PHILADELPHIA Giants.......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 5 1 1 - 7 10 0 Phillies........ 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 - 1 8 1 Win:Hammaker(4-3) Loss:Rawley(4-3) Homeruns- D.Gladden(2nd), M.Trillo(1st), A.Trevino(5th), R.Schu(4th) Atlee Hammaker allowed Jim Davenport to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game and Chili Davis had 2 base hits at VETERANS STADIUM where the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 7 to 1. San Francisco came up with 5 runs in the top of the 7th inning with the help of 3 hits. The highlight belonged to Dan Gladden who deflated the spirits of the home town crowd when he belted a three-run homer (his 2nd of the season). The teams had been locked in a scoreless duel until the 7th inning. Hammaker(4-3) got the victory, allowing 1 run for the game. Shane Rawley(4-3) was the loser. 'After the stretch we have been through lately, this victory is especially sweet' offered Jim Davenport. Now, we just have to make this the norm - not the exception!' HOUSTON AT PITTSBURGH Astros.......... 0 2 1 0 0 5 0 0 2 - 10 16 3 Pirates......... 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 1 5 1 Win:Scott(3-2) Loss:Tunnell(3-2) Homeruns- C.Reynolds(1st) Mike Scott was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete game at THREE RIVERS STADIUM as the Houston Astros beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 10 to 1. Craig Reynolds had a big day with his bat. He stroked a single which scored a run in the 2nd inning, smacked a one-base hit scoring two baserunners in the 6th inning and blasted a two-run home run (his 1st of the season) in the 9th inning. Houston had a total of 16 hits for the game. The winning pitcher was Scott(3-2) who allowed 1 run for the game. Lee Tunnell(3-2) suffered the loss. By surrending 7 runs in 5 and 1/3 innings his ERA jumped from 2.50 to 3.70. ATLANTA AT ST. LOUIS Braves.......... 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 2 10 1 Cardinals....... 3 0 3 2 0 1 5 0 - 14 20 0 Win:Tudor(5-3) Loss:Johnson(1-1) Homeruns- B.Horner(5th) John Tudor completed the game without help from the bullpen and catcher Darrell Porter had 3 base hits and 3 RBI as the St. Louis Cardinals clobbered the outmatched Atlanta Braves, 14 to 2. Atlanta fell behind quickly as the St. Louis offense came through in the first inning scoring 3 runs using 5 hits. Vince Coleman led off and started the rally when he singled. Coleman was safe at second on a stolen base. A balk was called. Two outs later Jack Clark came to the plate and delivered a one-base hit plating a run. Andy Van Slyke came to the plate and doubled driving in one more runner. Porter added to the uprising and doubled scoring the final run of the inning. That early scoring held up. St. Louis bats were hot in the 7th inning when they had 5 runs on 5 hits. St. Louis finished with 20 hits in the victory. The win was credited to Tudor(5-3) who went the whole way allowing 2 runs. Joe Johnson(1-1) was given the loss. He got hit pretty hard, allowing 13 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings.

Phelps provided much of the offense. He blasted a two-run home run in the 3rd inning and popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 4th of the season) in the 6th inning. Seattle finished with 9 hits while New York ended up with 5. Ed Vande Berg(1-1) got credit for the victory, pitching 3 innings and allowing 1 run. Phil Niekro(4-3) was given the loss.

BOSTON AT TEXAS Red Sox......... 0 1 0 2 0 1 0 0 0 - 4 8 0 Rangers......... 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 - 2 5 1 Win:Clemens(5-0) Loss:Noles(1-3) Save:Stanley(6th) Homeruns- R.Gedman(7th), T.Harrah(4th) Roger Clemens took a no-hitter into the 6th inning and Rich Gedman connected with a 'big fly' and had 3 RBI at ARLINGTON STADIUM as the Boston Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers by the count of 4 to 2.

BALTIMORE AT CALIFORNIA Orioles......... 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 - 1 8 0 Angels.......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 - 2 7 0 Win:Lugo(4-1) Loss:Snell(0-3) Homeruns- B.Grich(3rd) Bobby Grich left the yard at ANAHEIM STADIUM as the Baltimore Orioles lost a heartbreaker to California Angels by the score of 2 to 1. The deciding run was scored by California in the 9th. After an out was recorded, Doug Decinces delivered a single. Grich followed and he delivered a base-hit. Grich took second on the throw. Ruppert Jones then was walked intentionally to load the bases. Dick Schofield came up and he laced a single making California victorious to the delight of the the home town crowd. California had 7 hits for the afternoon. Rafael Lugo(4-1) was the winner allowing no runs in 2 and 1/3 innings. Nate Snell(0-3) suffered the loss in relief. He gave up 3 hits and 1 walk in 1 and 1/3 innings. With this win, California has a 18-22 record. They have been 3-7 lately. Baltimore has a record of 24-15 after the loss. TORONTO AT CLEVELAND Blue Jays....... 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 4 - 7 10 0 Indians......... 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 3 - 6 14 2 Win:Acker(2-0) Loss:Creel(1-3) 5,471 fans were treated to a fine game at MUNICIPAL STADIUM as only one run separated the combatants at game's end. The Toronto Blue Jays won by the slimmest of margins, 7 to 6. The score was tied at 3 after nine. Toronto won it in the 10th inning. The critical plate appearance was by George Bell who deflated the crowd as he delivered a one-base hit scoring two baserunners. Despite losing, Cleveland out-hit Toronto 14 to 10. The victory was credited to Jim Acker(2-0) who went 1 and 1/3 innings, allowing 3 runs. Keith Creel(1-3) was the losing pitcher in relief. CHICAGO AT KANSAS CITY White Sox....... 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 1 6 0 Royals.......... 0 1 3 0 0 1 0 0 - 5 7 1 Win:Leibrandt(1-4) Loss:Bannister(1-5) Homeruns- G.Brett(4th), D.Motley-2(5th) Left fielder Darryl Motley cracked 2 homeruns and Charlie Leibrandt pitched 9 strong innings as the Kansas City Royals topped the Chicago White Sox by a score of 5 to 1 at ROYALS STADIUM. Kansas City came up with 3 runs in the 3rd inning. Willie Wilson got things going when he laced a single. Lynn Jones was next and he drew a walk. George Brett then smacked a three-run homer (his 4th of the season). That early scoring held up. Kansas City rapped out 7 hits for the afternoon. Leibrandt(1-4) lasted until the end allowing 1 run for the win. Floyd Bannister(1-5) was tagged with the loss. He served up 3 homeruns in his 7 innings. Tony LaRussa was obviously impressed with the pitching of Leibrandt, 'That guy made us look a little silly out there this afternoon. We just couldn't get to him at all - everything was working for him. I just hope that he got that kinda performance out of his system.' MINNESOTA AT MILWAUKEE Twins........... 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 - 1 7 0 Brewers......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 1 0 Win:Blyleven(7-2) Loss:Haas(1-5) Homeruns- T.Teufel(8th) Bert Blyleven was on top of his game, blanking Milwaukee on just 1 hit at COUNTY STADIUM as the Minnesota Twins beat the Milwaukee Brewers by the count of 1 to 0. Blyleven(7-2) was tremendous on the mound for Minnesota. He was stingy on the mound, allowing just 1 hit and 3 walks in 9 innings reducing his ERA from 2.05 to 1.83. Minnesota managed 7 in their victory. The loss was charged to Moose Haas(1-5). 'All of my pitches were working today,' Blyleven said. 'I felt really good out there, and heck, I think I could have gone longer.' NEW YORK AT OAKLAND Yankees......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 4 1 A's............. 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 - 2 5 0 Win:Codiroli(7-3) Loss:Cowley(4-3) Save:Howell(9th) Homeruns- B.Bochte(4th) In a game for the baseball purist, Chris Codiroli(7-3) and Joe Cowley(4-3) squared off in a tense pitching duel, Oakland A's finally emerged victorious over New York Yankees, 2 to 0. Oakland jumped on top of New York in the 3rd inning scoring one runner on 2 hits. The early run support proved sufficient for Codiroli and Oakland. That was all the run support Codiroli required. Neither team managed to score after the 4th inning. Jay Howell got the save, his 9th. DETROIT AT SEATTLE Tigers.......... 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 - 3 4 0 Mariners........ 3 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 - 5 10 0 Win:Swift(2-4) Loss:Petry(4-3) Save:Thomas(4th) Homeruns- D.Evans(10th), G.Thomas(8th), S.Owen(3rd) Phil Bradley had 4 hits as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Detroit Tigers by the score of 5 to 3 at The Kingdome. Seattle jumped out to the early lead in the first inning when they scored 3 runs on 2 hits. The big moment was provided by Gorman Thomas who electrified KINGDOME when he lost the ball over the fence for three runs (his 8th of the season). Seattle had 10 hits for the game and Detroit had 4. Bill Swift(2-4) went 7 and 2/3 innings allowing 3 runs for the win. Swift got relief help from Roy Thomas who gained credit for his 4th save. Dan Petry(4-3) was the loser. BOSTON AT TEXAS Red Sox......... 3 0 2 0 1 0 1 0 0 - 7 12 0 Rangers......... 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 2 - 3 7 0 Win:Boyd(4-3) Loss:Russell(1-6) Homeruns- M.Easler(6th), R.Gedman(8th) At ARLINGTON STADIUM the Boston Red Sox easily handled the Texas Rangers by the score of 7 to 3. Mike Easler had a big day with his bat. He laced a one-base hit scoring a run in the 1st inning, popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 6th of the season) in the 3rd inning and doubled in the 7th inning. Overall Boston out-hit Texas 12 to 7. Oil Can Boyd(4-3) picked up the victory, allowing 1 run in 5 and 2/3 innings. Jeff Russell(1-6) took the loss. He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 12 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings. The Boston ballclub's record now stands at 27-13. Texas can't seem to snap out of their recent 'funk'. Now they have a miserable 2-8 record over the last couple weeks.

Hershiser(2-1) was simply too much for the New York batters. He didn't give up much, just 3 hits and 3 walks in 9 innings lowering his ERA to 2.84. Los Angeles took care of New York with no trouble in the bottom of the 9th. Ron Darling(2-3) ended up with the loss. He struck out 10 batters in 7 and 2/3 innings despite losing the game.

San Diego finished with 11 hits in the victory. Charles Hudson(1-4) was given the loss. He pitched 6 innings allowing 8 hits and 2 walks. 'Hoyt gave us exactly what we needed tonight,' Dick Williams said. 'When he threw the fastball he threw it for strikes. They were really fooled by his change. Most of the time he had them chasing it.'

Pittsburgh took care of Atlanta with no trouble in the bottom of the 9th. Cecilio Guante gained credit for his 2nd save. Terry Forster(0-2) was the loser in relief.

MINNESOTA AT BOSTON Twins........... 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 - 2 10 2 Red Sox......... 0 0 5 0 3 1 0 0 - 9 13 0 Win:Ojeda(4-3) Loss:Viola(2-5) Homeruns- D.Engle(3rd) Left fielder Jim Rice had 2 base hits as the Boston Red Sox topped the Minnesota Twins by a score of 9 to 2 at FENWAY PARK. Boston came up with 5 runs in the 3rd inning when they had 6 base hits. That early run support was enough for Bob Ojeda(4-3) and Boston. Boston finished with 13 hits while Minnesota ended up with 10. Frank Viola(2-5) absorbed the loss. Boston scored big getting 5 runs off him in 2 and 1/3 innings. The winning ways continue for Boston. They now have a record of 8-2 in recent days. With the loss, Minnesota has a record of 4-6 lately, 23-20 overall. BALTIMORE AT CALIFORNIA Orioles......... 2 2 0 5 0 0 1 4 0 - 14 14 0 Angels.......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 3 0 Win:McGregor(4-3) Loss:McCaskill(2-5) Homeruns- J.Shelby(3rd), C.Ripken(9th), E.Murray(9th), L.Sheets(5th) Scott McGregor shut down the California batters on just 3 hits and John Shelby had 4 hits as the Baltimore Orioles clobbered the outmatched California Angels, 14 to 0. Shelby led the offense for Baltimore. He lined a single in the 1st inning, smacked a one-base hit plating a run in the 4th inning, lashed a single in the 6th inning and launched a rocket-shot out of the park for a Grand Slam homerun (his 3rd of the season) in the 8th inning. Baltimore had 14 hits for the afternoon. McGregor(4-3) was credited with the shutout. Kirk McCaskill(2-5) was the losing pitcher. He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 8 hits and 3 walks in 3 and 1/3 innings. 'I thought it was my best performance in a long time,' said McGregor. 'I had good command early in the game. I had my control and composure and everything went well.' TORONTO AT CHICAGO Blue Jays....... 1 0 2 0 1 0 3 0 0 - 7 12 0 White Sox....... 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 1 0 - 4 12 0 Win:Alexander(5-4) Loss:Burns(4-4) Save:Henke(11th) Homeruns- G.Bell-2(12th), J.Barfield(13th), H.Baines(5th) Left fielder George Bell launched 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI at COMISKEY PARK where the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 7 to 4. Bell had a big day against Chicago. He cleared the fences for a two-run home run in the 3rd inning and rifled a three-run blast (his 12th of the season) in the 7th inning. Toronto and Chicago each finished the afternoon with 12 hits. The win was credited to Doyle Alexander(5-4) who went 7 and 2/3 innings allowing 4 runs. Alexander was helped out by Tom Henke who recorded his 11th save. Britt Burns(4-4) was the loser. TEXAS AT KANSAS CITY Rangers......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 - 2 9 2 Royals.......... 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 3 7 2 Win:Black(5-4) Loss:Hooton(3-5) Save:Quisenberry(9th) Homeruns- G.Brett(6th) 16,729 fans watched an exciting game at ROYALS STADIUM. The Kansas City Royals topped the struggling Texas Rangers by the slimmest of margins, 3 to 2. Kansas City did all the necessary damage in the 1st inning when they scored 3 runs on 3 hits. That early scoring was all that Bud Black(5-4) needed. Texas threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short. Black got help from Dan Quisenberry who earned his 9th save. Burt Hooton(3-5) took the loss. Kansas City continued on their recent roll, their winning streak now reaching 6 games and counting. CLEVELAND AT MILWAUKEE Indians......... 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 - 2 7 3 Brewers......... 1 1 0 0 0 2 0 1 - 5 8 0 Win:Higuera(5-4) Loss:Schulze(3-5) Ted Higuera allowed George Bamberger to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game and Paul Molitor had 2 base hits as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Cleveland Indians by the score of 5 to 2 at COUNTY STADIUM. Milwaukee promptly took the lead in their half of the first scoring one runner using 3 hits. Milwaukee finished with 8 hits in the victory. Higuera(5-4) finished the game allowing 2 runs in the victory. Don Schulze(3-5) suffered the loss. He pitched 5 and 2/3 innings allowing 6 hits and 2 walks. Milwaukee now has a record of 12-29. With the loss Cleveland now has a record of 14-30. NEW YORK AT OAKLAND Yankees......... 0 2 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 - 5 10 0 A's............. 1 0 1 2 1 0 0 1 - 6 13 1 Win:Atherton(2-2) Loss:Bordi(4-2) Homeruns- B.Bochte(5th), M.Heath(5th) One run was the difference at OAKLAND COLISEUM as the Oakland A's defeated the New York Yankees 6 to 5. The game was decided in the 8th inning. After two outs Dwayne Murphy doubled. Mike Heath came to the plate and doubled scoring the run. This was the kind of game that many fans love as the lead changed hands 5 times. The win went to Keith Atherton(2-2) who allowed no runs in 1 and 2/3 innings. Rich Bordi(4-2) ended up with the loss in relief. He allowed 3 hits and 1 walk in 3 innings. DETROIT AT SEATTLE Tigers.......... 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 5 9 2 Mariners........ 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 1 - 7 11 1 Win:Beattie(3-0) Loss:Tanana(4-4) Save:Thomas(5th) Homeruns- A.Davis(10th), I.Calderon(4th), D.Henderson(6th) In a close game it was the Seattle Mariners 7, the Detroit Tigers 5 at The Kingdome. Seattle scored 3 runs in the 5th inning with the help of 4 hits. After two outs Jack Perconte got things rolling when he stroked a one-base hit, and an error was also committed. Phil Bradley came next and he doubled driving in a run. Alvin Davis then popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 10th of the season). Detroit proved to be no trouble in the 9th. Jim Beattie(3-0) picked up the victory, allowing no runs in 2 and 2/3 innings. Roy Thomas gained credit for his 5th save. Frank Tanana(4-4) was given the loss. He was not very effective, surrendering 6 runs in 4 and 2/3 innings.

Cincinnati won the game with a run in the bottom of the 9th inning. After an out was recorded, Eric Davis drew a walk. Bo Diaz next to the plate and he doubled giving Cincinnati the victory and sending the 14,529 home-town fans home happy. This was a game of many highs and lows for the home town fans, as the lead kept changing - 5 times in all. The winning pitcher was John Franco(6-0) who allowed no runs in 2/3 of an inning. The loss was charged to Lee Smith(0-2) in relief. He surrendered 3 hits and 2 walks in 1 inning.

He allowed only 5 hits and 3 walks in 7 and 1/3 innings. Deleon whiffed an impressive total of 9 Houston batters lowering his ERA from 2.79 to 2.44. The game was a scoreless duel until the 6th inning. Deleon got help from Al Holland who was credited with his 2nd save. SAN FRANCISCO AT MONTREAL Giants.......... 0 0 1 0 0 4 0 1 0 - 6 11 0 Expos........... 0 1 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 - 3 13 1 Win:Krukow(4-2) Loss:Smith(5-2) Save:Davis(12th) Homeruns- R.Deer(2nd), T.Raines(5th) The San Francisco Giants defeated the Montreal Expos by a score of 6 to 3 at OLYMPIC STADIUM.

Mike Krukow(4-2) went 7 innings allowing 3 runs for the win. Mark Davis earned his 12th save. Bryn Smith(5-2) was charged with the loss.

San Diego set the tone of the game in the first inning as they scored 3 runs on 3 base hits. The early run support proved sufficient for Hawkins(4-4) and San Diego. That was all the run support Hawkins required. Neither team managed to score after the 4th inning. Roy Lee Jackson got the save, his 2nd. Kevin Gross(3-3) was hit with the loss. He gave up 4 runs and 7 hits in 7 innings.
