May 19, 1984 - Eight is Enough
Frank Pastore was the starting pitcher for the Reds, and I'm not exaggerating when I say he's been the worst starter in either league in this Statis Pro season. He came into the game with an 11+ ERA, which is especially hard to do given how probabilities work in Statis Pro. So imagine my surprise when he got through the first four innings without surrendering a run! But in the fifth everything fell apart, as the Cardinals scored four times, two of those runs coming from a bases-loaded double by Ken Oberkfell. St. Louis would tack on four more in the seventh, including a pinch-hit homer by Tito Landrum that scored two. Kurt Kepshire continued his stellar season by going six strong innings and only giving up one run in the first.
