May 26, 1984 - Last Game of the Week

Game #571 - Cleveland Indians, 4 @ Toronto Blue Jays, 10

Rick Sutcliffe and Luis Leal were in a race for worst pitching performance in the last game of the week.  In the bottom of the first Cliff Johnson launched a three run homer as the Blue Jays totaled four in the inning.  In the top of the second Indians catcher Jerry Willard deposited a Leal pitch over the right field wall for three RBI of his own, bringing the Indians within a run of tying it up.

In the third, though, Willie Upshaw took the game over.  With Jorge Bell and Cliff Johnson on base, he ripped a bases-clearing triple.  In the seventh he added a three-run homer off George Frazier and Toronto ended the game with one in the win column.

Winning Pitcher - Luis Leal
Losing Pitcher - Rick Sutcliffe
Player of the Game - Willie Upshaw, 2-3, BB, 3B, HR, 5RBI
