Tigers Drop Final Game of Season, Rest Starters

by @ 4:31 am. Filed under 1984 Tigers Championship Diary, 1984 Tigers Diary - September, Aurelio Lopez, Barbero Garbey, Bill Scherrer, Doug Baker, Randy O'Neal, Willie Hernandez

September 30, 1984 Yankees 9, Tigers 2 (104-58)

Sparky rested most of his starters, and gave his pen a final tune up game before the playoff run. Starter Randy O’Neal was shelled for seven runs, and didn’t escape the fifth inning. Four of the five innings he threw in resulted in runs by the Yankees.

Doug Baker and Barbero Garbey drove in the only runs for the Tigers. The bright spot of the game were shutout innings by Bill Scherrer, Aurelio Lopez, and Willie Hernandez. It was nice to see the pen more calm going into the playoffs after a rough week.

With the loss, the Detroit Tiger’s regular season ended. They’d be playing in the playoffs for the first time since 1972 when they lost to the Oakland A’s in the ALCS.
