Tigers Win Close One In Chicago Opener

April 6, 1984 – Tigers 3, White Sox 2 (3-0)

The Tigers drew first blood , as they scored three runs before the White Sox even batted. Dave Bergman came up with a big two run, two out single to give the Tigers that three run lead. Of course they would have never known that all those runs would be very important, as they’d get only three more hits the rest of the way.

Milt Wilcox pitched seven quality innings, giving up only four hits and one run in seven innings. He did walk four, and one of those, drawn by Harold Baines, was the only player to score on him.

And then the Tigers got a minor scare in eighth. Pitching in his third consecutive game, Willie Hernandez gave up one run in the eighth, but slammed the door shut in the ninth, givng the Tigers their third straight win and Hernandez his first save of the season.
