May 13, 1984 - The Divisional Leaders
My apologies for the lack of posts as of late! August is my busiest month at work, and there were a handful of other events I won't bore you with, but we're back in action!
My dad, who has managed a few games for his favorite team (Dodgers) this season, was back in the dugout for this one. This time he was managing his second favorite team from his hometown - the Cardinals! Long story short...he destroyed me. Frank Pastore gave up twice as many runs as innings pitched and four Cardinals had multi-hit games.
Winning Pitcher - Kurt Kepshire
Losing Pitcher - Frank Pastore
Player of the Game - Willie McGee, 5-5, 2B, 3B, 2R's, 5RBI's

Game #426 - Chicago Cubs, 1 @ Houston Astros, 2
Even when the Astros aren't hitting they're winning! Houston only pushed two runs across the plate, but it was enough to win the game. In the bottom of the first Bill Doran scored from first on a hit and run double from Terry Puhl. Bobby Dernier scored in the top of the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Ron Cey, but in the bottom of the seventh Puhl hit a sacrifice himself to score pinch hitter Phil Garner.

Player of the Game - Terry Puhl, 1-3, 2B, 2RBI's
