Posted on April 19, 2016
1984 — The Detroit Tigers suffer their first loss of the season after nine consecutive wins. The Tigers fall to the Kansas City Royals and rookie Bret Saberhagen, who earns his first major league victory.
Final score: Royals 5 – Tigers 2. Interesting that Dan Petry gave up five runs and Sparky still let him pitch eight innings.
