Don Mattingly made sure the New York fans enjoyed themselves. He ripped a single resulting in a run in the 1st inning, launched a Grand Slam homerun in the 2nd inning and stroked a base-hit in the 7th inning. Dave Righetti was perfect in relief and gained credit for his 15th save.
The victory went to Joe Cowley(5-7) who went 6 innings, allowing 2 runs. Ray Burris(6-7) suffered the loss. He was not very effective, surrendering 6 runs in 5 innings.
