Tigers Win Fourth Straight, One Shy of 1968 Win Record

by @ 1:12 am. Filed under 1984 Tigers Championship Diary, 1984 Tigers Diary - September, Aurelio Lopez, Bill Scherrer, Howard Johnson, Lance Parrish, Randy O'Neal, Sid Monge, Willie Hernandez

September 25, 1984 Tigers 9, Brewers 1 (102-55)

Four runs in the first inning put this game away pretty quickly as Howard Johnson hit a grandslam, his twelth of the season. Lance Parrish followed this with a solo shot in the third, and the Tigers coasted to their 102nd win of the season.

Sparky went with the kids on the mound, and Randy O’Neal improved to 2-0 by pitching five shutout innings, giving up only two hits, and striking out three. Sid Monge, Bill Scherrer, Aurelio Lopez, and Willie Hernandez pitched an inning a piece, with the Brewers tagging Lopez for a run in the eighth. In total, the Brewers only managed six hits against the five pitchers.

And now they stood one win short of the record 103 wins set by the 1968 team. With five games left, the record was definitely within reach.
