April 21, 1984 - Blue Jays Improve to 12-3

Game #179 - California Angels, 0 @ Toronto Blue Jays, 6

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.

Winning Pitcher - Jim Acker
