April 17, 1984 - Davis and Doyle
Mike Moore of the Seattle Mariners just couldn't quiet the Oakland bats this game. He gave up six runs through five innings, and relievers Paul Mirabella and Dave Beard let the A's score four more.
Joe Morgan continued his torrid start by going 2-4 with a double, homer, and two walks. He's hitting over .500 on the season and his OBP is over .600!
Mike Davis was clutch with the bat too. He went 3-5 with a double and a homer too. Starter Bill Krueger pitched a complete game, scattering seven hits and four walks for the victory.

Game #136 - Baltimore Orioles, 3 @ Toronto Blue Jays, 4
This was a tightly contested match versus two of the best teams in the AL East right now. Mike Young hit a triple in the first inning for the Orioles and Eddie Murray drove him home with a single. (Mike Young and Lloyd Moseby were tied for the league lead in triples starting this game, and both hit one to remain tied) The Blue Jays answered back in the bottom half of the inning when Willie Upshaw blasted a three run homer off of Mike Boddicker.
The O's chipped back at the Blue Jays when Murray knocked in two more Oriole base runners in the third, but a Rich Dauer error in the bottom half of the inning led to Damaso Garcia scoring the go-ahead run to give Toronto a 4-3 lead. Doyle Alexander settle down after that and pitched the complete game victory - his third complete game of the year (one coming in a rain shortened outing).
