Jack Morris Comes Back With a Vengeance to Beat Brewers

June 24, 1984 Tigers 7, Brewers 1 (52-18)

Jack Morris had missed a couple of starts due to a sore elbow, but the rest must have done him some good, as he bounced back nicely. He’d finish with six innings of one hit ball to improve to 12-3, and Aurilio Lopez would pitch the final three to earn his ninth save. In all, the Brewers only had three baserunners.

Lance Parrish went three for four and hit his thirteenth homer of the year, and Rupert Jones, lumber trance and all, hit his third, a three run shot in the sixth.

With the win, the Tigers expanded their lead to 8 1/2 games heading into a road series with the Yankees. A nice cushion that would slowly get larger over time as the Blue Jays hit a rough patch.
