Yankees Kick Off Month of July With Loss to Tigers

by @ 1:15 pm. Filed under 1978 Yankees, 1978 Yankees Diary - July, Andy Messersmith, Dick Tidrow, Gary Thomasson, Jay Johnstone, Ken Clay

July 1, 1978 at Yankee Stadium
Tigers 8, Yankees 4  (43-33)

Andy Messersmith and Ken Clay were roughed up as the Tigers doubled up the Yankees in front of big crowd.  Messersmith dropped to 0-3 and he gave up three runs in 1 1/3 innings when Clay took over and replicated Messersmith’s efforts.  Dick Tidrow was also knocked around and while he gave up just two runs, he yielded seven hits and a walk in four innings of relief.

Gary Thomasson provided the bulk of the Yankees offense in the loss.  He went two for four with a three run homer and two runs scored.  Jay Johnstone went two for three with an RBI.
