Luis Salazar played against the Cubs in the 1984 playoffs


Did you know the great third baseman Luis Salazar of the 1989-1992 Chicago Cubs also played for the 1984 Padres? The despised 1984 Padres that beat the beloved Cubs in the 1984 playoffs. Luis Salazar even played three games in those playoffs against the Cubs. Here’s how he did:

Game 2: Hitting 7th, 3B, 0-for-3, 1 K

— Top 2nd, Padres behind 0-1

Strikeout swinging for 3rd out with one man on, against Steve Trout

— Top 5th, Padres behind 1-4

Flyball to RF for 2nd out against Steve Trout

— Top 7th, Padres behind 204

Flyball to RF for 3rd out against Steve Trout

Game 4: Luis Salazar pinch hits for Kevin McReynolds (CF) batting 6th, 0-for-1

— Bottom 8th, Padres tied 5-5

Groundout: 3B-1B for 2nd out against Lee Smith

Game 7: Luis Salazar replaces Bobby Brown playing CF batting 6th, 1-for-1 triple

— Bottom 8th, Padres head 6-3

Triple to CF leadoff against Warren Brusstar

Caught stealing home

I’d like to see what happened when he tried stealing home. He was caught during the next batter, so there were no outs with him on third.
