April 30, 1984 - In-tens

Game #279 - Cleveland Indians, 3 @ Baltimore Orioles, 10

The Orioles were up 1-0 in the bottom of the third when they busted things open.  Eddie Murray hit a 2-RBI double and three batters later John Lowenstein paid homage to Earl Weaver by blasting a three run homer.

Storm Davis pitched a heck of a game.  He went the distance and only gave up three hits, though that included five walks as well.  Brook Jacoby recorded two of them, including a solo homer with two outs in the ninth.

Winning Pitcher - Storm Davis
Losing Pitcher - Steve Farr
Player of the Game - John Lowenstein, 3-3, HR, 3RBI's, BB
Hall of Famers in the Game - Cal Ripken, Eddie Murray

Game #280 - Seattle Mariners, 10 @ California Angels, 2

Seattle finally figured the Angels out!  They had lost the first three games of the four game series, but got to Bruce Kison early and often.  Alvin Davis and Dave Henderson each hit homers, but it was Steve Henderson who might have had the best game.  I still haven't seen a cycle completed by a Statis Pro player this season, but Steve was only the round-tripper shy of accomplishing the feat.  Jim Beattie pitched a dominating eight innings to secure the victory for the M's.

Winning Pitcher - Jim Beattie
Losing Pitcher - Bruce Kison
Player of the Game - Steve Henderson, 3-5, 2B, 3B, 2R's, 4RBI's, outfield assist
Hall of Famers in the Game - Rod Carew, Reggie Jackson
