The Reds fell behind 4-0 by the Third Inning and 7-0 by the Fifth Inning.
I probably should have pulled Soto earlier, but the league rule is that starters have to pitch at least 5 innings (unless injured).
I expected this to be an Opening Day pitcher's duel and Ron Darling did his part...
Foster had a huge game for the Mets, even reaching second base on a Redus error then scoring in the Ninth Inning.
What This Is
These are write-ups and statistics from a 1984 Season replay using APBA Baseball. I am using some modified replay rules as well.
