Bucs Batter Blue Jays!

Rogers HornsbyToronto (ATL) The more manager Mark Dewdney's status seems to be the talk of the town, the farther down his player's performance seems to sink. In the second game of a long six game homestand against the Pirates, things got rather ugly. The game did hold out some promise for the Blue Jays as the team's ace, one Roger 'Rocket" Clemens, had returned from the DL and was going to lead Dewdney's troops into battle. Unfortunately, Rocket was nowhere near top form, perhaps still feeling the ill effects of his spring training shoulder injury. In any case the Pittsburghers quickly put a pair of runs in the first when the red hot Rogers Hornsby doubled in Lloyd and Delahanty. Things only got worse from there for the hometowners, as spitballer Eddie Walsh cruised through the Jays lineup and Clemens was consistently banged around by the Pittsburgh batters. Two more runs came in the third, also courtesy of Hornsby, delivered via his 6th four bagger of the young season. Three more Bucs crossed the plate in the fourth and now the rout was officially on. There was a small commotion in the fifth when Eddie Walsh himself laced a double down the right field line and Thurmon Munson came around to score from first, head down and legs churning furiously. The Jays' manager accused the the Bucs' skipper of unsportsmanlike conduct, while Mortimer maintained that Munson, a back-up who doesn't get much playing time, simply ran through the stop sign at third. In any case, at 9-0 the outcome was no longer in doubt. The game finished at 10-0. Rocket completed the game himself and was noticeably grumpy about being left in to absorb the punishment. "Is that any way to treat your ace?" he wondered aloud at his locker after the game. "Especially coming off an injury like this. This guy (Dewdney), I wonder about him sometimes." There was nary a dissenting voice in the room. Two things were established in the game: the Bucs are officially on a roll, and Dewdney's status is even more tenuous than ever.


Game three of the Bucs-Jays series pitted Stan Coveleski vs. Jose Rijo, and nothing much seemed to change aside from the pitchers on the hill. The Jays did manage to make more of a game of it, but Hornsby had four more ribbies and in all nine Bucs found a foothold on home plate before all was said and done. The fourth inning was the killer as five Pirates scored, the last two via a Hornsby trey. That put the score at 7-1 Pittsburgh, and now the Toronto players were in open rebellion against their skipper. George Bell (and his disappointing .182 average) finally managed to find the seats for the first time of the season, as did teammate Paul Molitor, but in the end Coveleski had won his second straight game and Rijo had absorbed the 9-6 loss. The "Silent Rebellion" that had been the talk of the town finally broke out in full view after the game, "Groucho Marx" glasses and all, as Dewdney was sacked of his position and Keith Hernandez took over the reigns of the club as player-manager.


Game four of the series pitted undefeated "Rapid Robert" Feller versus winless Dave Steib in Hernandez's inaugural managerial appearance. Once again the Bucs jumped to an early lead as slumping Johnny Mize, who came into the game batting only .234, tripled the opposite way. "The Big Cat" then came home on a Turkey Stearnes groundball. The Jays managed to knot the game at one when Roberto Alomar skied one into the stands on a 1-0 Feller fastball for his fourth dinger of the year. The Bucs quickly regained the lead in the sixth however, as the one man wrecking crew named Rogers Hornsby doubled in "Pop" Lloyd, who had also laced a two bagger off Steib just prior to Rajah's blast. The Bucs tacked a pair on top of that in the next inning when catcher Gabby Hartnett went deep with Judy Johnson aboard for his fourth homer of the season. The game finished 6-2, with Feller getting his fourth win (to go along with a sterling 1.61 ERA) and Steib suffered his fourth loss despite pitching well, allowing only four hits in his seven innings of work. The Pirates had now won the first four games of this uber-series, and Hernandez had fared no better than Dewdney in his first outing as player-manager. Despite going hitless, his average still stood at .400 after the game however.


The fifth game of the series followed the script of the first four, unfortunately for the still suffering Toronto cranks. David Cone versus Jack Morris was the match-up, and again the Bucs drew first blood. The newly resurgent Johnny Mize went deep off Morris and later off lefty David "The Fat Bastard" Wells as well. "The Big Cat" was now up to .267 and claimed 5 taters as his own on the season. The Jays did "hold" Hornsby to a pair of hits and just a single ribby, but when all was said and done the Coneheads were celebrating David's third victory in four decisions while Jack's brigade were still searching for their first "W" to toast as Morris absorbed his second loss. With the 7-2 loss the Jays dropped further in the standings at 4-16--and 0-2 with Hernandez at the helm--and the Bucs soared ever higher at 17-3. Their great start is tempered by the fact that their new division rivals, the Chicago Cubs, were keeping pace with them at last sighting, holding a 13-3 record pending the results of their series at Wrigley versus the struggling Reds. The two streaking teams are slated for a big six game collision of a series after the Bucs leave Exhibition Stadium after one more contest. The results of those tilts will certainly be interesting to see.
