April 16, 1984 - Win this one for the Knepper!

Game #131 - Los Angeles Dodgers, 1 @ Houston Astros, 7

Three starts into the Statis Pro season its easy to see how Bob Knepper earned his All Star card.  He's 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  Besides Dwight Gooden, there isn't a better pitcher in the National League right now.

He had a slightly rocky start against the Dodgers.  He walked Steve Sax to start the game.  Sax moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Dave Anderson.  Pedro Guerrero then singled him home for the lone LA run in the game.

The Astros first scored in the third inning.  Fernando Valenzuela gave up a single to Phil Garner before Jose Cruz stepped to the plate.  Cruz hit his second homer of the year to give Houston the 2-1 lead.  Valenzuela got into more trouble in the fourth before finally getting yanked after giving up five more runs to Houston. 

Winning Pitcher - Bob Knepper
Losing Pitcher - Fernando Valenzuela
Player of the Game - Knepper, 8IP, 10H's, 3K's, 1R.  This is Knepper's third POG honor, the most in Statis Pro right now.
