April 21, 1984 - Blue Jays Improve to 12-3
Everything is going Toronto's way.
I threw out reliever Jim Acker for the rare spot start today (he only started three games in the real 1984). He's a Statis Pro 2-5 rating, meaning he's not super reliable. But if this card teaches us anything, it's that a steely glare and a little luck will get you far in the 1984 do-over.
Acker tossed a shutout, with the Angels stranding 9 runners throughout the game. Jorge Bell (as it was spelled back in the day) went two for four with a homer, double, and 4 RBI's. Moseby added his own two run blast.
