May 2, 1984 - Summer Vacation

I had a bit of time away from Statis Pro over the past week due to a family vacation.  It was a lot of fun, including getting to see my beloved Baltimore Orioles win two games back to back.  On to the games!

Game #305 - Houston Astros, 6 @ Cincinnati Reds, 4

The Astros continued their scorching start to the season.  The Reds chased starter Mike LaCoss out of the game with a three run sixth to give themselves a 4-3 lead.  But the 'stros put two on the board in the eighth off of reliever John Franco to pull ahead for the victory.

Game #306 - Chicago Cubs, 1 @ New York Mets, 6

The Cubs took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when utility infielder Dave Owen, spelling Larry Bowa, poked a single to plate Ron Cey.  But it was all Mets after that.  Most of the damage came in the fourth inning, when they scored four runs on a bases loaded double by Kevin Chapman and an RBI single from Jose Oquendo.  Darryl Strawberry added a solo shot in the eighth to cap the damage at six runs.  Meanwhile, "El Sid" scattered eight hits and four walks while nearly pitching a complete game.  He also fanned the Cubs ten times in that span.
