This Day in Braves History- April 30, 1990

On this date in Braves history...April 30, 1990

1992 Pinnacle "The Idols"
   With Dale Murphy on second and catcher Ernie Whitt on first base, Mark Lemke hits a grounder that Mets second baseman Gregg Jefferies fields and throws to pitcher David Cone, who had run over from the mound to cover first base. When first base umpire Charlie Williams calls Lemke safe, ruling that Cone had missed the base, the pitcher goes berserk-arguing vehemently with Williams. In the meantime, since the play is still live, Murph and Whitt both come around to score- giving the Braves a 4-1 lead.
