April 14, 1984 - They Might Be Giants
Who knew the cure for the Giants seven game losing streak was Dodger Stadium? Chili Davis got the partied started right when he hit a lead off home run in the top of the first inning. Jeff Robinson of the Giants was pitching pretty well on the day before he finally surrendered an RBI single to Mike Scioscia that plated Mike Marshall.
It stayed 1-1 until the to of the sixth. Jeffrey Leonard singled and stole second base. Then two batters later pinch hitter Dusty Baker made his former team pay when he roped a double to score Leonard. Rick Honeycutt was still pitching for the Dodgers into the eighth when the wheels fell off for good. The Giants batted through their lineup in the inning and added five more runs to their lead. In the bottom half of the inning the Dodgers had a rally starting, but Pedro Guerrero was passed on the base path by Mike Marshall, leading Pedro to be ruled out. You gotta love the crazy Statis Pro "Z" plays!
