* april 12th is in the books   2 comments

let’s take a quick glance at what happened on the reprise of april 12, 1975 …

.

DET 110 100 101 - 5 11 1
NYY 000 040 000 - 4  8 0

DET: Ruhle 5.1, Hiller (W, 1-0) 3.2; Freehan 9.0
NYY: Dobson (L, 0-1) 8.0, Lyle 1.0; Munson 9.0

DET HR: Sutherland (1), Horton (1)
NYY HR: None

Detroit kept pecking at Yankee pitcher, Pat Dobson.  A run here, a run there. Solo
homers from Sutherland and Horton helped.  The Yanks laced four runs together
in the bottom of the fifth and took a lead briefly.  The cats from Detroit knotted
the score in the top of the seventh.  John Hiller, on the mound for the visitors, worked
long to help protect a bullpen that might be needed in tomorrow's double header.
In the top of the ninth Freehan led off with a single.  Another single from Meyer chased
Dobson out of the game, but Lyle couldn't stop the hits and Freehan would score
two batters later.  Hiller worked a spectacular 3.2 innings to get the win.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BOS 121 222 100 - 11 19 0
BAL 011 010 000 - 3  7 0

BOS: Cleveland (W, 1-0) 7.0, Moret 2.0; Montgomery 9.0
BAL: Grimsley (L, 0-1) 3.1, Garland 1.2, Alexander 1.1, Jefferson 2.1, Reynolds 0.1; Duncan 9.0

BOS HR: None
BAL HR: Robinson (1), Davis (1)

The Red Sox broke out of their slump in a BIG way strapping 19 hits and
11 runs on the Orioles.  Ross Grimsley lasted until the forth inning when
Weaver had had enough and sent him to the showers.  But it wasn't just
Grimsley as Garland and Alexander both continued to give up runs. The
Sox needed to come out of their slump and they did it big time.

.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CLE 000 011 010 - 2 5 0
MIL 010 000 001 - 1 6 0

CLE: Peterson (W, 1-0) 6.0, Buskey 1.2, LaRoche (Sv 1) 1.1; Ellis 9.0
MIL: Slaton (L, 1-1) 9.0; Moore 9.0

CLE HR: Bell (1), Lowenstein (1)
MIL HR: Money (1)

Here was a throwback game ... a pitcher's duel.  Slaton may have outlasted Peterson
in innings pitched, but he came up short in the win column.  Slaton goes the distance
giving up only five hits, but two of those were long balls and that would be enough
for the Indians as they get a combined one run game from Peterson, Buskey, and
LaRoche.  A great first win of the season for the tribe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MIN 100 406 000 - 11 14 1
KCR 000 000 000 -  0 5 1

MIN: Blyleven (W, 2-0) 9.0; Roof 9.0
KCR: Briles (L, 0-1) 4.0, Dal Canton 1.1, Bird 2.2, McDaniel 1.0; Martinez 9.0

MIN HR: Darwin (1), Roof 2 (2)
KCR HR: None

Phil Roof led the Twins in their assault of the Royals. The backup catcher
went deep TWICE driving in five runs. The Royals pitching was great after
the first six innings were done.  But by then the score was already out of
control and it became a matter of trying to save the bullpen.  The Royals
bats were quiet as Blyleven went the distance.  That guy might someday
be a hall of famer!  He's really, really good.

side note:  Phil's card may be the first i've seen where a batting glove was worn.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHW 000 012 000 - 3 7 1
CAL 000 100 000 - 1 4 1

CHW: Wood (W, 1-1) 6.0, Upshaw 2.0, Gossage (Sv 2) 1.0; Downing 9.0
CAL: Hassler 5.0, Scott (L, 0-1) 1.0, Pena 2.0, Kirkwood 1.0; Rodriguez 8.0, Egan 1.0

CHW HR: Bradford (1)
CAL HR: None

Another good pitcher's game for both teams. Hassler tires after just five, but leaves
the game with the score knotted at one. Mickey Scott comes in to relieve Hassler only
to give up the lead.  With two outs he hits Carlos May. Three singles later the Angels
are down by two and that would be the difference.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OAK 210 012 010 - 7 10 0
TEX 000 000 000 - 0 5 0

OAK: Blue (W, 2-0) 9.0; Tenace 9.0
TEX: Jenkins (L, 0-1) 6.0, Hargan 3.0; Sundberg 9.0

OAK HR: Bando (1), Williams (3)
TEX HR: None

The great pitcher's duel that was anticipated between Vida Blue and Fergie Jenkins
ended up being a one sided affair with the young southpaw doing all the damage.
Jenkins was battered for six runs before escaping the game while Blue allowed only
five hits over nine innings with three of those coming in the last three innings.  Blue
struck out 9 in the contest.
