Tigers Set Record, Hammer Angels

May 11, 1984 Tigers 8, Angels 2 (26-4)

The Detroit Tigers were the toast of the town as they broke the record for the best start by a team ever. This one wasn’t much of a contest, as the Tigers went up 2-0 in the second, and never looked back.

Six different Tigers had multihit games, and Dave Bergman drove in three runs.

Milt Wilcox pitched six strong shutout innings to improve to 4-0, and Willie Hernandez, although shaky, finished the game off. 44,187 fans came out to see the Tigers break the record set by the 1955 Dodgers, and the Tigers didn’t let them down.
