April 30, 1976
Detroit at Chicago
Detroit takes a 1-0 lead in the top of the 1st inning, but the White Sox storm back in the bottom of the 1st, scoring three runs, aided by three doubles. Detroit ties the game with a pair of runs in the 3rd, but leave the bases loaded, which proves to be a bad omen. Chicago takes the lead back in the bottom of the 4th, but Detroit ties it back up in the 7th. The Tigers again leave the bases loaded in the 9th, sending the game into extra innings. Jim Spencer wins it for the home team with a two run homer in the bottom of the 12th.
Detroit: Ruhle, Laxton (6), Crawford (11) and Wockenfuss
Chicago: Forster, Carroll (8) and Varney
Detroit ends the month of April with a 6-7 record, right around the .500 mark which is the best I can hope for.
