Dave Stieb Shutsdown Tigers

June 13, 1984 Blue Jays 7, Tigers 3 (44-16)

The Tigers ran into a brick wall in Dave Stieb, and they never really had a chance in this one. Stieb pitched seven strong shutout innings, giving up only three hits. It wasn’t until the eighth inning, against rookie reliever Jimmy Key, that Tigers managed to get on the board with three runs.

Milt Wilcox threw five mediocre innings, and Doug Bair got lit up for three runs in his two relief innings.

No real hitting stars in this one, as the Tigers only managed to get seven hits, and nobody had more then one.

So the Tigers had a chance to really extend their lead, but by dropping the last two games, they gave Toronto some help. Six games was a nice cushion, but hardly insurmountable this early in the season.
