April 29, 1984 - One Is Not Enough

Game #275 - St. Louis Cardinals, 12 @ Montreal Expos, 1

If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time this season I've used six different pitchers in a game for one team.  Congrats to the Expos!  This was necessitated in part because starter Bill Gullickson, along with Gary Carter and Terry Francona, got ejected from the game arguing with the ump on a close play at first.  It was a barrage of hits for the Cardinals after that.  But Danny Cox was the true stand out player of the game.  He went eight innings only giving up one run.

Hall of Famers in the Game - Ozzie Smith, Gary Carter, Andre Dawson

Game #276 - Philadelphia Phillies, 2 @ New York Mets, 1 (game called in the bottom of the eighth due to rain)

Mike Schmidt has started off slow this Statis Pro season, but his bat might finally be waking up.  He accounted for both runs in this game.  He smacked a double in the second inning and eventually scored on a Juan Samuel sacrifice fly.  In the fourth he hit a solo homer off Walt Terrell.  Terrell actually pitched a good six innings, but he still got tagged for the loss because, with Darryl Strawberry at bat in the bottom of the eighth, the rains came pouring down and Philadelphia sneaked out of New York with the abbreviated win.

Winning Pitcher - Jerry Koosman
Losing Pitcher - Walt Terrell
Player of the Game - Mike Schmidt, 2-3, 2B, HR, RBI, 2R's
Hall of Famers in the Game - Mike Schmidt
