April 6, 1984 - Rest of the AL Action
Game #33 - Milwaukee Brewers, 3 @ Seattle Mariners, 2
The poor Mariners can't catch a break. If you could choose between these two starting pitchers, who would you take: A) 7IP, 7H's, 3K's, 3BB's, 1HR or B) 7 2/3IP, 5H's, 8K's, 2BB's, 0HR? Pitcher A was Jamie Cocanower and pitcher B was Jim Beattie, but Cocanower only gave up two runs and Beattie gave up three. Ted Simmons and Rick Manning had the tying and go ahead RBI's in the 7th. Ken Phelps had a solo shot for the M's, which probably brings a smile to the faces of all you stat heads out there.
Winning Pitcher - Jamie Cocanower
Losing Pitcher - Jim Beattie
Save - Rollie Fingers
Player of the Game - Rick Waits, in the eighth he retired the number 3, 4 and 5 hitters in the Mariners lineup.
