    Game of the Week-Saturday, August 5, 1972 Detroit Tigers (52-50 .510 13.5gb 4th place) at Cleveland Indians (45-61 .425 22.5gb 5th place)

    A match-up of the two top candidates for the AL Cy Young Award for 1972. It's been a very disapointing year for Detroit, while Cleveland has made some strides after their disastrous 1971 season.

    Back-up game: Pittsburgh Pirates at Montreal Expos

    Starting Pitchers Mickey Lolich (17-10 2.46 28starts 23cg 4shutout 252ip 221h 74r 69er 16hr 49bb 202k) vs Gaylord Perry (16-9 1.58 27starts 22cg 5shutouts 233ip 159h 51r 41er 6hr 48bb 155k). Perry is tied with Jim Perry for 2nd in the AL in ERA. Lolich is 1st and Perry in the MLs in CG. Lolich is 2nd and Perry 3rd in the AL in IP. Lolich is 2nd in the AL in Ks. Perry is tied for 1st and Lolich is tied for 2nd in leading MLB in HBP. Perry is one of his years top ground-ball pitchers, while Lolich is a top fly-out pitcher.

    W-Lolich (18-10)
    L-Perry (16-10)

    Pitching dominates today. Perry is good today and Lolich is even better allowing only 3 baserunners and pitching six 3 up 3 down innings and retiring the first 12 batters that he faces.

    This was a match up that lived up to the hype. Two very strong pitchers matched up well against two of the games less potent offenses.

    L-Palmer (16-5)
    Shoddy Oriole defense and 2 HRs by rookie Ben Ogilvie are enough to put the game away for Boston. Marty Pattin gets the CG win and helps himself by getting 2 hits and 2 RBI. Doug Griffin gets 3 hits for Boston. Palmer has an usually shaky outing giving up 4 XBHs.

    W-Kline (14-4)

    Thurman Munson goes 4 for 5 and and drives in 3 runs and scores 1 (only a great play by Rick Auerbach in the 9th keeps Munson from going 5 for 5). Steve Kline scatters 8 hits as he gets a relativley easy shutout. * of the 9 New York starters has at least 1 hit with only Rusty Torres going hitless. Auerbach ans George Scott each have 2 hits for the Brewers.

    W-Messersmith (14-9)
    L-Splittorff (10-11)
    RBI single by Art Kusnyer and a HR by Leo Cardenas are all the Angels need for this win. Andy Messersmith strikes out 11. He and Paul Splittorff each go the distance. Splittorff helps himself by driving in the Royals only run. california is now in a virtual tie for second place.

    L-Griffin (1-3)
    Ken Henderson HRs with 1 out to win the game in the 10th. Garry Maddox hits a 3 run HR in the second to put the Giants up 5-2 and knocks the ineffective Dave Roberts out of the game (and possibly out of the Astros rotation). The Astros are to come back twice to tie the game after getting good relief pitchiung form Jim York and Tom Griffin. Sam McDowell's poor season continues but Don Carrithers is exceent in relief. Jesus Alou starts in place of Jim Wynn and gets hits for Houston. Wynn enters the game as a PR and is injured after colliding with Chris Speier on a stolen base attempt. Both leave the game. Speier is expected back for tommorows DH, but Wynn is expected to miss a week.

    Oakland A's (68-39 .636 1st place) at Kansas City Royals (55-52 .514 13 GB 3rd place)

    Back-up game: New York Mets at St Louis Cardinals

    Earlier Today:

    In Atlanta-it was announced that manager Lum Harris has been fored and replaced by Ed Mathews.

    At Cooperstown, NY-the Hall of Fame Game

    Inducted into the Hall of Fame this year are: Yogi Berra, Josh Gibson (dec), Lefty Gomez, Will Harridge (dec), Sandy Koufax, Buck Leonard, Early Wynn and Ross Youngs (dec).

    Ex-Dodger Mike Kekich faces off against ex-Yankee Al Downing and each pitches pretty well against his former team. The Dodgers get an unearned in the 1st after a Ron Swoboda error. In the 5th Celerino Sanchez doubles with the bases loaded and drives in all 3 base runners. In the 8th 3 consecutive Dodger hits tie the game, but Bobby Murcer is able to single home Horace Clarke (who had tripled with 1 out) for the go ahead run in the 9th. Sparky Lyle comes in and shuts the door on the Dodgers in the bottom of the 9th. Earlier in the year this game was looked at as a possible World Series preview, but the Yankees may be in too deep of a hole now to make that a reality.

    Twins rally late to defeat the Rangers. Harmon Killebrew homers in the 7th to bring the Twins within 1 run. Doubles by Bobby Darwin and Dan Monzon drive in the tying and winning runs. For the Rangers Larry Biitner and Dalton Jones homer in the 2nd inning. Bobby Darwin gets 3 hits for the Twins. 7 of the Rangers hits are for extra bases. 5 of the Twinds hits are XBHs.

    Pre-game: While the A's aren't eally hated in KC A's owner Charlie Finley is. A month ago the Royals were in the thick of the raqce only 4 games out.In the last month the teams forunes have dramatically divurged. The A's have 19 and 8, while the Royals have gone 13-16. The Royals have dropped into 3rd place, passed by the suddenly surging California Angels, and are now 11 games out. Even if the A's stop playing at such level the Royals will need to start winning consistantly again if they still want to try to catch the A's. This 3 game series would be a good place to start getting back to winning consistantly again.

    Starting pitchers: Ken Holtzman (15-7 2.10 25g 19cg 6shut 214.2ip 176h 64r 50er 8hr 44bb 133k) vs Bruce Dal Canton (6-2 3.71 16g 10gs 80ip 89h 39r 33er 6hr 16bb 62k)

    A game that gets out of hand very quickly for the Royals. This is about as big a blowout as we've seen this season. Seven A's starters get at least 2 hits and every starter had at least 1 hit. Gene Tenace gooes 6 for 6 with 6 RBI. Every Royals pitcher gives up at least 3 runs. The A's havce a hit in every inning and score in 8 of the 9 innings. The A's score 9 two out runs. The A's have 27 base runners.

    W-Siebert (9-7)
    L-Lamb (3-5)
    HRs by Tom McCraw and John Lowenstein power the Indians past the Red Sox. 4 of the Indians hits are for extra bases. Jack Brohamer drives in 2 runs with a 9th inning double. Ray Lamb pitches a great game in a spot start. Doug Griffin has 2 hits for Boston.

    MIL 200 000 010-3 10 0
    W-Dobson (16-6)
    L-Ryerson (1-3)
    The Orioles have trouble putting the Brewers away in a game highlighted by plenty of offense. Brooks Robinson and Johnny Briggs each have 3 hits. Every member of the Orioles, except Pat Dobson, have at least 1 hit-with Don Buford, Andy Etchebarren and Mark Beanger each having 2 hits. Mark Belanger has 2 errors tonight. Rick Auerbach and George Scott each have 2 hits for the Brewers.

    A WP and PB lead to 3 unearned runs as Gibson blows up in the 5th giving up 6 runs as the Mets get 6 consecutive hits startingwith a HR by John Milner. Jon Matlack scatters 10 hits for a CG win. With the Pirates idle tonight the Cardinals fail to gain any ground in the NL East race.

    The Braves take the loss in Ed Mathews's managerial debut (although the Braves won 3 games of this 5 game series). Pinch-hitter Mike Lum triples home 2 runs to bring the the Braves within 1 run of the Reds in the 7th. Denis Menke HRs in the bottom of the 7th for the Reds. The Reds put the game out of reach when an ineffective Cecil Upshaw is rushed in after an injury to Jim Hardin in the 8th.

    August 8, 1972 Philadelphia at Pittsburgh

    In 10.2 innings Steve Carlton strikes out 20. 17 of the Ks came in the first nine innings. Willie Stargell tied the game in the bottom of the 9th with a solo HR and the Pirates won the game in the 11th 4-3. Roberto Clemente gets a hit and now needs 14 hits to reach 3000.

    At the end of May I started playing Action PC which I have found that I enjoy more than Dynasty League in just about every way. I recently purchased the 1972 season (Action Pc has periodic sales where you can buy 5 seasons for the price of 1 Dynasty League season) and here is how the 1972 season finished:

    We do this as part of our diet. It's hard to run a sim and eat a doughnut at the same time.

    That number "WAR" does NOT measure wins above replacement. I am not sure what it measures, but it sure isn't the value between a player and his back-up. The final number certainly does not measure what the name suggests.

    I laughed when I read the original comment. As far as I can tell my wife is a girl.
