April 23, 1984 - Merry Christmas!

Game #199 - Texas Rangers, 3 @ Cleveland Indians

The Rangers sure gift wrapped this game for the Indians...

Let's play a game where I'll obviously try to trick you.  Which pitcher listed below would you assume won today's game?

PITCHER A:  Complete Game, 4 Hits, 3 Walks
PITCHER B:  6IP, 8 Hits, 3 Walks

Pitcher B was Rick Sutcliffe, who actually notched the victory, as the Rangers had five different innings where they stranded a runner on third.  Pitcher A was Danny Darwin, who gave up six unearned runs thanks to four Texas errors.  Only three different Indians even had a hit!

Winning Pitcher - Rick Sutcliffe
Losing Pitcher - Danny Darwin
Save - Mike Jeffcoat
Player of the Game - Jeffcoat, save.
