Game 2 - "Petry Dishes Shutout"

GAME 2 - 10/16/82
Petry vs Gullickson.
Tigers 7, Expos 0

 Dan Petry and the highly acclaimed Tiger offense were firing on all cylinders tonight.  Petry, who fanned 7, scattered 5 hits and easily shutout the Spos.  Larry Herndon (2-5) knocked in 3 via a two bagger and a long ball.  Sweet Lou Whitaker (3-5) also went deep, but more importantly was the offensive catalyst who scored 3 runs.  The top 4 batters in Detroit's offense (Whitaker/Lemon/Herndon/Parris) went a combined 9 for 18 and scored 6 of the Tigers 7 runs.  The 7th run was scored by light hitting 9th batter Allan Trammell.
Series tied 1-1
