April 26, 1984 - White Sux

Game #231 - Chicago White Sox, 6 @ Cleveland Indians, 9

The White Sox had a funny inning in the fifth.  They hit for the cycle, in order of smallest hit to biggest.  With one out Julio Cruz singled.  Lead-off man Jerry Hairston then doubled to plate Cruz.  Vance Law grounded out but Harold Baines tripled to score Hairston.  Next up was Carlton Fisk, and he homered for two RBI's and completion of the cycle!  It gave Chicago the lead but they couldn't make it stick as Cleveland chased away starter Floyd Bannister in the seventh and reliever Ron Reed was gouged for two more runs in the eighth (unearned thanks to a Scott Fletcher error).

Winning Pitcher - Jamie Easterly
Losing Pitcher - Floyd Bannister
Save - Ernie Camacho
Player of the Game - Easterly, 3IP, no runs, good bit of relief after a shaky start from Blyleven.
Hall of Famers in the Game - Carlton Fisk, Bert Blyleven
