May 4, 1984 - AL East Smackdowns

Game #315 - Detroit Tigers, 14 @ Cleveland Indians, 5

Detroit absolutely erupted on offense.  For the first (and probably only) time on the season, three different teammates each hit two homers apiece.  Kirk Gibson, Lance Parrish, and Howard Johnson were the power triad this game, including a grand slam for HoJo.

Winning Pitcher - Dan Petry
Losing Pitcher - Rick Sutcliffe
Player of the Game - Howard Johnson, 3-4, HR, GS, 5RBI's

Game #316 - New York Yankees, 9 @ Milwaukee Brewers, 2

Don Mattingly has had a mostly benign season up to this point, so it was fun to see him explode at the plate in this game.  He went 4 for 4 and knocked home four runs to boot.  Dennis Rasmussen continued his hot start to the year by going eight innings and striking out six.  The Brewers continue to falter in all aspects of their play.  Jamie Cocanower couldn't last three innings while the bullpen got stretched to cover the shortfall.

Winning Pitcher - Rasmussen
Losing Pitcher - Cocanower
Player of the Game - Mattingly, 4-4, HR, 2 2B's, BB, 4RBI's, 2R's
Hall of Famers in the Game - Dave Winfield, Robin Yount


  1. Can you use this lineup for your next phillies game?

  2. Lezcano is on the DL - want to sub in Maddox?

  3. sure, but put him in the 6 spot and shift everyone up. :)
    p.s., love what you are doing. I am 15 years old, and I use my dad's 1988 game to play, but I have found more recent pdf cards to print off and use. I am currently making a 1975 set, as well as replaying the 2011 mlb season.
