May 5, 1984 - NL West Rolling

Game #335 - Cincinnati Reds, 11 @ Philadelphia Phillies, 7

I've played 20+ games with the Reds, and I still misspell "Cincinnati" every blog entry...

The Reds capitalized on a Glen Wilson error to plate three in the first inning, including RBI doubles from Dave Parker and Ron Oester.  Juan Samuel doubled home Von Hayes in the bottom of the inning.

With the score still 3-1 in the third, Cesar Cedeno smacked a two run homer, though the Phillies got two more in the fourth to make it 5-3.  That was the same inning Mike Schmidt had to leave the game due to an injury while going for a foul ball.  He'll have to sit out the next game too.

The Reds kept scoring, though, and pulled away to win the game.

Hall of Famers in the Game - Mike Schmidt

 Game #336 - Los Angeles Dodgers, 2 @ Pittsburgh Pirates, 1

Including this game, Alejandro Pena has thrown four complete games in six games started this year!  He was filthy against the Pirates, only surrendering three hits and three walks.  The one run scored against him was due in part to his own fielding error.

John Candelaria was nearly as good, giving up only two runs over eight innings, but the lackluster Pirate offense continues to sputter.
