May 11, 1984 - 400

Game #400 - St. Louis Cardinals, 10 @ Cincinnati Reds, 2

Howdy friends!  If you can't tell by now, I just played my 400th Statis Pro game for this 1984 season!  It's taken just over three years to get here, but nonetheless, we're here!  As always, thanks for taking time to read these silly posts.

This game actually started off quite suspenseful.  There were goose eggs on the scoreboard through the first four innings as Danny Cox and Jay Tibbs were holding their opposing hitters in check.  But in the top of the fifth Cox squeezed home Tom Herr and then Ozzie Smith hit a 2-RBI single to give the Red Birds a 3-0 lead.  They never looked back as Cox pitched eight innings while only giving up one run.

Winning Pitcher - Danny Cox
Losing Pitcher - Jay Tibbs
Player of the Game - Cox, his third straight POTG
