Scott allowed three hits, one run and three walks in eight innings, throwing 135 pitches and earning a game score of 77. Dave Smith pitched the ninth to pick up his third save of the season. Scott improved to 4-0 with the impressive performance in a season when he went 14-8 with a 2.92 ERA. Scott also had an FIP of 3.00 and earned the third-highest WAR of his career that season at 3.9.
Scotty needed some help from Gerald Young, who went 3 for 4 and third baseman Chuck Jackson, who was 2 for 2 with a double. Jackson, a seventh-round pick from the University of Hawaii in '84, started this game and just came into my consciousness for the first time when I wrote this game up.
Young also stole three bases in this game, which was pretty impressive. It was also a nice performance by Scott, who gave up two hits and the run in the first inning, before locking things down for the rest of the game. Here, again, is a graphic replay of the game, thanks to Back to Baseball.
