The Tigers back home and leading 2-0 send Walt Terrell (15-10 3.85 Grade 8Y) while the Royals send Danny Jackson (14-12 3.42 Grade 12) go to the hill.
The pitchers would come out in command in Game 3 as we are scoreless through 3 innings. In the bottom of the 4th the Tigers bust out with a huge 5 spot. Big 2 run throwing error from Onix Concepcion and clutch hits from Darrell Evans and Larry Herndon. The Royals would get a run back in the 5th as Hal McRae would single home Concepcion.
The Royals would get that run back in the 7th again via unearned run on a misplay in the outfield to make it 6-1. The Royals would score 1 in the 8th and 2 more in the 9th and bring the tying run to the plate but Willie Hernandez gets Frank White to ground out. The Tigers take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.
Final Score: Tigers 6, Royals 4
WP: Walt Terrell (1-0)
LP: Danny Jackson (0-1)
