September 12, 1984 Orioles 3, Tigers 1 (93-53)

Orioles starter Dennis Martinez shut down the Tigers, as he gave up only six hits and one run, while going the distance. The Tigers scored their only run when Chet Lemon scored on a wild pitch.

Roger Mason made his first career start, going four innings and giving up three runs. The rookie would be traded the following year to the San Fransisco Giants for Alejandro Sanchez. Randy O’Neal made his major league debut in relief of Roger Mason, pitching three solid innings of one hit ball. O’Neal’s career would run through the 1990 season, and he played for five different teams, mostly as a long reliever/spot starter.

Just a quick note on Alejandro Sanchez. He played six seasons, and racked up 214 at bats, mostly as an outfielder. Most notable about his stats are the fact that he walked only one time in his entire career, and it wasn’t until his next to last season with the Twins.
