May 26, 1984 - Great Eight

Game #569 - Detroit Tigers, 8 @ Seattle Mariners, 0

Glen Abbott started for Detroit, and even though he wasn't much of a pitcher in the real 1984, he held the Mariners scoreless through five innings.  That's when Willie Hernandez came on for three innings of relief brilliance.

Kirk Gibson, Darrell Evans, and Howard Johnson all homered for Detroit.

Winning Pitcher - Glen Abbott
Losing Pitcher - Jim Beattie
Player of the Game - Hernandez, 3IP, 0R, 4K's

Game #570 - Chicago White Sox, 8 @ Texas Rangers, 5

The Pale Hose had a huge inning in the first.  Harold Baines and Tom Paciorek both launched two-run homers.  They were up to an 8-2 lead in the bottom of the ninth when Hall of Famer starter Tom Seaver allowed a three-run pinch hit homer to Tracy Jones to end his bid for a complete game.

Winning Pitcher - Tom Seaver
Losing Pitcher - Mike Mason
Save - Juan Agosto
