April 22, 1984 - Reynolds Errors Lets Braves Win
Craig Reynolds must be feeling awful tonight. I mean the fake, Statis Pro Reynolds. I'm sure the real Craig is doing just fine. But Statis Pro Craig made two errors in the game, the last one being the game winner for the Braves.
Houston was up 2-0 after the top of the third, thanks to a triple and double by Terry Puhl. The former led to the first run and the latter knocked in the second. Puhl ended the game just a homer shy of the cycle. (I'm excited for the first Statis Pro cycle, no-hitter, four homer game...) Jerry Mumphrey added a three run tater in the fifth and Houston was up 6-3 with four innings to go.
An Atlanta rally in the seventh tied things up at six. Dave Smith was pitching for Houston in the bottom of the eighth when Bruce Benedict singled with one out. Brad Komminsk grounded out to first but advanced Benedict to second. Albert Hall grounded to Reynolds...who overthrew first and allowed Benedict to score! Terry Forster pitched the ninth for the save. Atlanta stays in first after taking two of three against Houston.
