April 25, 1984 - Seaver Trounced, Indians Roll

Game #218 - Chicago White Sox, 6 @ Cleveland Indians, 11

Mr. Castillo, is your name "Carmelo" or "Carmen"?  Your history of baseball cards list both.  How strange...

Whatever his name, he tagged Tom Seaver for a three run homer in the bottom of the first.  The hit allowed the Indians to take an early 4-0 lead after an inning of play.  Seaver has not looked good this season and Cleveland didn't help his stat line. 

The Indians hit three homers, including Castillo's, while the White Sox had four of their own, including two by Greg Walker and three in the eighth inning.  The other big highlight was a triple player ejection.  Catcher Jerry Willard hit a slow roller up the first base line that the umpire called fair.  Walker, Carlton Fisk, and Dan Spillner argued to the point of being removed.
