April 27, 1984 - AL East Remains Dominant

Game #243 - Toronto Blue Jays, 9 @ Kansas City Royals, 4

George Brett committed a costly error in the first inning that allowed Jorge Bell to double home an unearned run off Mark Gubicza.  In the top of the second Bell made Gubicza pay again, swatting a two run homer and ending his pitching day before escaping the second.  Tony Fernandez continued his hot hitting while playing for the injured Alfredo Griffin by going four for four, including a triple.

Game #244 - Milwaukee Brewers, 1 @ New York Yankees, 8

Ray Fontenot, the starting pitcher for New York, managed to spread eight hits and two walks over eight innings pitched while only allowing Randy Ready to score on a Robin Yount single.  The Brewers helped him out by hitting into three double plays, including two by Cecil Cooper.  Everyone but Omar Moreno managed to collect at least one hit in the Yankee line-up.  Ken Griffey led the way by going three for four with a double, two runs scored, and three RBI's.  Willie Randolph scored three times thanks to two hits and two walks on the day as well.  The Yankees and Blue Jays continue to nip at the heals of Detroit for the top spot in the AL East!
