Mark Langston Pitches Two Hit Gem to Upend Tigers

August 29, 1984 Mariners 5, Tigers 1 (87-46)

A week and a half ago, rookie starter Mark Langston shut down the Tigers with a four hit, eleven strikeout appearance over 8 1/3 innings. This time, he did one better, pitching a two hit complete game, striking out twelve Tigers.

Dan Petry was the opposing pitcher the last time the Tigers face Langston, and a nice outing was wasted. This time he didn’t fare as well, but it really didn’t matter because Langston was on. Petry was gone by the end of the fifth, and suffered his eighth loss of the season.

Suprisingly, the Tigers actually had the lead in this game. In the top of the second, Rusty Kuntz drove in Lance Parrish with a single, and that was the only Tiger to cross the plate.
