May 26, 1984 - Lansford and Lezcano Lauded

Game #567 - New York Yankees, 6 @ Oakland A's, 14

Headed into the bottom of the fifth the Yankees actually held a slim 3-2 lead.  But Joe Cowley allowed four runs in the inning, including a two-run bomb from Carney Lansford.  But Lansford wasn't done.  He added a solo homer in the seventh for his second of the game, followed directly by a moonshot from Dwayne Murphy.  Mike Heath had three hits in the game, and all three were RBI doubles.  Every Oakland starter had a hit except Joe Morgan.

Curt Young gutted out seven innings, giving up 12 hits and 4 walks, but only three runs.

Player of the Game - Carney Lansford, 4-5, 2B, 2HR's, 4RBI, 3R's

Game #568 - San Diego Padres, 2 @ Philadelphia Phillies, 6

The Phillies scored all six of their runs in the bottom of the first.  Andy Hawkins allowed the first five batters to reach base, including two-run homers by Sixto Lezcano and Joe Lefebvre.  Hawkins hung in until the sixth inning to give the Padres bullpen a breather and didn't allow another run, but the Padres anemic offense couldn't dig out of the first inning hole.

Winning Pitcher - Shane Rawley
Losing Pitcher - Andy Hawkins
Player of the Game - Sixto Lezcano, 3-4, 2B, HR, 2RBI, BB
Hall of Famers in the Game - Tony Gwynn, Mike Schmidt
