May 6, 1984 - AL East Haves and Have Nots

Game #339 - Detroit Tigers, 7 @ Cleveland Indians, 5

The Tigers leaped out to a 7-1 lead after six and a half innings, led by a Kirk Gibson two-run shot in the third and a three run jack by Darrell Evans in the top of the seventh.  Cleveland chipped away but ran out of time to complete a comeback.

Game #340 - New York Yankees, 9 @ Milwaukee Brewers, 2

The Brewers' offense is absolutely putrid.  I mean they are terrible.  Guidry wasn't particularly effective, but the Brewers hit into three different double plays, killing potential rallies throughout the game.  Lou Piniella, Dave Winfield, and Don Mattingly had back to back to back doubles in the fourth, leading to three runs scored.  The only blow for New York was losing Willie Randolph to injury.  He'll sit for about 10 games, which means I probably won't play with him again until 2016, lol...
