April 19, 1984 - Biggest Inning of the Year

Game #159 - Montreal Expos, 12 @ New York Mets, 5

I finally got my scanner working again!  The last few posts I was copying off the internet, but Jim Wohlford represents a return to my collection...

The Mets jumped out to a 5-0 lead when Bryn Smith gave up RBI doubles to Keith Hernandez and George Foster in the first and a Mookie Wilson double in the third.  Miguel Dilone pinch hit for Smith in the sixth, and that's when the wheels fell off for Sid Fernandez and the Mets.  "El Sid" gave up a hit to Dilone and walked three straight Expos after that before finally getting lifted.  Brent Gaff came in for relief and got two quick outs with the bases loaded, but gave up another four hits and a walk.  That's when Jim Wohlford took Wes Gardner deep for a grand slam home run.  When all was said and done, the Expos scored ten runs in the inning, which I'm pretty sure is a record for this Statis Pro League.

  1. Now here's the big question: what's your Statis Pro 1984 record for runs scored by a team in a game? Mine's 23...and it was done twice! I also had a game where the final was Baltimore(!) 20, Cleveland 16...

  2. I took a quick look at the box scores and I think the biggest number so far has been 15 (a couple of times) - obviously my guys are slacking off compared to your season!

  3. I've had (2) 20+ run games so far.....Baltimore beat Cleveland 20-4 and San Francisco (who have usually been a lousy offensive team) beat Cincinnati 21-5.

  4. Dave, which season are you playing? I've got 1978...but it's obvious that Baltimore has a game-wide vendetta against Cleveland. Rob, if the O's score 20 on the Tribe at some point in your season, then we'll know that the Indians cards are cursed. Or, you intentionally walked three dozen Oriole batters so they would win...

  5. I'm playing the '84 season. Having played about 40 games with every team, Cleveland and Oakland no doubt have the worse pitching in the AL.

  6. Trust me, they were't too hot in 1978, either.
