New York opened the scoring in
the fourth inning. After Gary Ward
singled, Detroit third baseman
Darnell Coles threw Dave
Winfield's slow roller past first
baseman Darrell Evans. Winfield
reached second on the error and
Ward raced home with the unearned
run to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.
The Tigers tied it in the sixth on
Lanry Hermdon's towering home run
to the 440-foot mark in left-center.
Detroit threatened to score in the
first inning when Winfield
mishandled Herndon's one-out shot
to rightfield. The ball bounced off
the base of the wall and Herndon
was awarded a triple. Yankees third
baseman Mike Pagliarulo saved a
run by snagging Chet Lemon's
sharply hit grounder and nailing
him at first. New York starting
pitcher Dennis Rasmussen struck
out Alan Trammell to end the

The 51,315 who braved the cold,

Blanchard, who tossed out the
ceremonial first pitch. The fans had

Herndon attempted a similar catch

leftfielder stopped short and the ball
landed at his feet. More boos.
