Yankees Blow Out Indians for Third Straight Win

April 23, 1977 at Cleveland Stadium

Yankees 9, Indians 3 (5-8)

A six run third inning was all the Yankees needed as they won their third straight game.  Thurman Munson had three hits and three RBIs in the win and Mickey Rivers had two doubles, a stolen base, an RBI and a run.  Willie Randolph contributed as well.  He singled three times and scored twice.

Dock Ellis picked up the win and he evened his record to 1-1.  He gave up three unearned runs on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings of work.  Dick Tidrow threw the final 3 1/3 and by shutting out the Indians, he picked up his first save of the season.

Yankees Shut Out by Bill Travers, Lose Third Straight Game

by @ 12:15 pm. Filed under 1977 Yankees, 1977 Yankees Diary - April, Bucky Dent, Chris Chambliss, Dock Ellis, Mickey Rivers

April 17, 1977 at County Stadium

Brewers 2, Yankees 0  (2-6)

The Yankees continued to struggle and this time they were held scoreless.  It was their third straight loss and their sixth loss in the last seven games.  This time, a great start by Dock Ellis went to waste.  He gave up only two runs on six hits and four walks with two strikeouts in eight innings of work.

Oddly, three Yankees had multihit games despite the team having only seven hits.  Mickey Rivers, Chris Chambliss and Bucky Dent all had two hits in the game.
