The Red Sox were in Detroit, it was June 18th and the Sox had already won the first two games of the series. Outfielder, Juan Beníquez had two big games to help secure both wins with a triple in the opener to start a winning rally and a home run to win the second. For game three Fred Lynn had a game that most players can only dream of having. In the first inning he slammed a homer into the upper deck in right field for a four-run inning. In the second he hit one off the roof of the upper deck in left center for a three run inning. Just before clearing the top of the fence in left center, Lynn clubbed a long drive that came back for a triple. For the sixth inning he beat out an infield single, then smashing a three-run homer into the upper deck in right again to finish the game. Fred had knocked in ten runs, which would tie the Red Sox record for RBIs in a game helping Luis Tiant win his ninth game, 15-1.
