May 18, 1984 - Sweet Sixteen
Dennis Martinez made his first start of the season...and it did not go well. At all. So far he had only appeared out of the bullpen and this was a terrible transition. In the first inning alone he gave up six runs, including homers by the torrid Alvin Davis and Al Cowens. I finally extended mercy on El Presidente by pulling him after three with the M's up 9-0.
Meanwhile, Mark Langston looked strong for Seattle. He worked in and out of a couple of jams and was pretty much cruising the entire game. By the time the dust settled he went the distance, recording a shutout and seven K's while scattering twelve base runners.
