Tigers Hammer Yanks, Set Franchise Win Mark

by @ 4:22 am. Filed under 1984 Tigers Championship Diary, 1984 Tigers Diary - September, Dwight Lowry, Howard Johnson, Juan Berenguer, Lance Parrish, Larry Herndon, Roger Mason

September 29, 1984 Tigers 11, Yankees 3 (104-57)

With a strong offensive performance, and with only one game left in the season, the 1984 Detroit Tigers won their 104th game, setting the franchise record. The game was actually close for a while, but with the game tied 1-1, the Tigers scored five runs in the sixth to bust the game open. They added five more in the ninth to seal the game up.

Juan Berenguer pitched another nice game to improve to 11-10. He went six innings, giving up only one run on two hits. His six walks were a concern, but he pitched out out of a bases loaded jam in the second and the third innings to walk away with a winning record on the season. Roger Mason finished the game off, going three innings and earning his first career save.

Larry Herndon, Lance Parrish, and Dwight Lowry hit homeruns, and Howard Johnson hit a three run double.

It was a historic day for the franchise, and fitting for what most people feel was the greatest Tiger’s season of all time.

Wilcox Remains Perfect as Tigers Sweep A’s

by @ 6:48 am. Filed under 1984 Tigers Championship Diary, 1984 Tigers Diary - June, Dwight Lowry, Larry Herndon, Milt Wilcox

May 20, 1984 Tigers 4, A’s 3 (32-5)

This was another one run game where the Tigers got off to a nice early lead, but watched the other team nearly come back to beat them. Milt Wilcox was simply awesome, and improved to 6-0. He threw six innings, and only gave up three hits and a walk. Willie Hernandez pitched the final three innings, and his only blemish was a solo homerun by Mike Heath. In total, the two pitchers would hold the A’s to four hits while only giving up one walk.

Dwight Lowry, the Tiger’s backup catcher, hit the first homerun of his career. Larry Herdon picked up two singles to be the only Tiger with a multihit game. Nine of the ten Tiger hits were singles, with the Lowry homer being the exception.
