May 1, 1984 - So Much Powder Blue

Game #289 - Kansas City Royals, 12 @ Milwaukee Brewers, 2

This game was pretty close until the Royals unloaded for eight runs in the eighth and ninth innings.  Relievers Rick Waits, Pete Ladd, and Jack Lazorko got crushed.  Six different Royals (Willie Wilson, Pat Sheridan, George Brett, Jorge Orta, Frank White, and Dane Iorg) had multiple hits.

Game #290 - Minnesota Twins, 3 @ Seattle Mariners, 5

The Mariners jumped out to a 2-0 lead when Dave Henderson's home run plated himself as well as Orlando Mercado, who reached on a Lenny Faedo error.  But Gary Gaetti hit a solo shot in the fourth and Tim Teufel knocked in two in the sixth to give the Twins the lead.  But Dave Hendrson wasn't done for the day.  With two runners on, he launched his second homer of the game and tallied all five RBI's for the Seattle victory!
