* april 9th is in the books   2 comments

let’s take a quick glance at what happened on the reprise of april 9, 1975 …

.

MIL 010 800 000 - 9 13 0
BOS 000 000 020 -  2  6 0

MIL: Broberg (W, 1-0) 7.0, Murphy 2.0; Porter 9.0
BOS: Lee (L, 0-1) 4.0, Moret 2.0, Drago 3.0; Montgomery 9.0

MIL HR: Garcia (1), Scott (1)
BOS HR: None

Boston continues to struggle as Lee lasts only four innings and gives up nine runs.
Milwaukee's hitting is in full swing.  Scott hit a grand slam in the fourth inning
to put the game seriously out of reach.  Aaron was ejected for arguing balls and
strikes.  Records indicate this is the first time he's ever been tossed from a game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MIN 000 021 100 - 4 11 0
TEX 000 100 020 - 3  8 0

MIN: Decker (W, 1-0) 5.0, Campbell 2.0, Albury 1.0, Burgmeier (Sv 2); Borgmann 9.0
TEX: Bibby (L, 0-1) 5.0, Thomas 2.0, Umbarger 1.2, Wright 0.1; Sundberg 9.0

MIN HR: none
TEX HR: none

Minnesota continues it's strong pitching to start the season. Decker went five to open
the game and then the bullpen handled the Rangers bats quite well.  Rangers pen, on the
other hand is struggling. Something is going to have to give before the Rangers are
going to be able to find the win column.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
KCR 002 100 001 - 4 10 1
CAL 000 000 000 - 0  2 0

KCR: Splittorff (W, 1-0) 9.0; Healy 9.0
CAL: Tanana 1.2, Pena (L, 0-1), Scott 3.0, Kirkwood 2.0, Blateric 1.0; Rodriguez 9.0

No home runs

Battle of lefties doesn't last long as Tanana leaves in the second inning due to a blister.
Splittorff didn't allow a hit until the bottom of the 7th. The Angels looked futile at the plate
as they mustered only two hits of the southpaw and only two batters reached second base.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHW 020 000 000 -  2 8 0
OAK 107 030 02X - 11 6 1

CHW: Kaat (L, 0-1) 2.0, Forster 3.0, Upshaw 2.0, Kucek 1.0; Downing 8.0
OAK: Holtzman (W, 1-0) 7.0, Lindblad 2.0; Tenace 9.0

CHW HR: none
OAK HR: North (1), Rudi (1), Tenace (1)

Jim Kaat couldn't sneak a chocolate bar past a diabetic or a pitch past the A's sluggers. In the third
inning the Chi-town southpaw gave up hits to the first seven batters including yielding two homers.
When the manager Chuck Tanner had the pen ready the score was already 8-2.  Short outings by
the starting pitchers always makes it rough for the bullpen.
.

Let’s take a look at April 10, 1975:
BAL (Palmer 0-0) @ DET (Coleman 0-0)
CHW (Bahnsen 0-0) @ OAK (Norris 0-0)
MIN (Goltz 0-0) @ TEX (Brown 0-0)

  2. As an AL East Brewers fan from back in the day, I’m enjoying reading you play out the ’75 season. I grew up with Status Pro, and am playing around with the ’67 season in Strat-O-Matic, as much to learn about another game as to learn about that year’s beloved Red Sox team… I’m a recent transplant to Massachusetts, and the attempt to assimilate continues…. Keep it up!
