Mike Boddicker Shuts Down Tigers, Tigers Losing Continues

September 4, 1984 Orioles 4, Tigers 1 (88-51)

Captain Hook was true to form as Dave Rozema gave up back to back singles, a sac fly to Cal Ripken, and then a third single before Sparky pulled the plug early. Bill Scherrer came in to stop the damage, as he got the final two batters out.

Then Sparky went to rookie Roger Mason, who made his major league debut. Mason pitched all eight remaining innings, giving up only four hits and striking out six. Unfortunately one of those hits was a two run shot by Rick Dempsey.

Alan Trammell and Howard Johnson both had two hits, but it was rookie Nelson Simmons, who also made his major league debut, that drove in the only run for the Tigers.

With the loss, the Tigers lead was cut to 7 1/2 games. With an upcoming series against the Jays, things were looking pretty dicey and the fans had to have been a little worried.
