Joe Sparma Is Shelled By Red Sox In Tigers Loss

by @ 3:11 am. Filed under 1968 Tigers Diary - June, Daryl Patterson, Dick McAuliffe, Joe Sparma, Norm Cash, Willie Horton

June 19, 1968 at Tiger Stadium
Red Sox 8, Tigers 5 (42-23)

Joe Sparma took it on the chin again and he fell to 5-7 with a subpar outing.  He gave up five runs on eight hits and four walks with eight strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings.  Daryl Patterson gave up three runs in his 2/3 of an inning, but all three were unearned because Patterson himself made an error in the inning.

Wille Horton and Norm Cash both hit solo homers in the loss.  For Horton, it was his 18th of the season and Dick McAuliffe went one for two with three walks and two runs.
