April 29, 1984 - New York Knight

Game #269 - Milwaukee Brewers, 12 @ New York Yankees, 9

What a game for Roy Hobbs Howell!  Joe Cowley gave up a solo homer to Howell in the bottom of the second.  In the bottom of the third, Howell came up again and took new reliever Clay Christianse deep for a two run jack (and right after tempers were boiling when Cowley hit Ed Romero with a pitch that puts him on the DL for the next 20 games).  His next two hits?  How about a triple and double!  In the top of the ninth Mike Armstrong finally got Howell to ground out, his first out of the game that left Roy a single short of the first cycle of the season.
