Great start to your season banny! Looking forward to seeing it unfold. I played the NL years ago in much the same way you're going to be playing, 20 man rosters. Can't wait to see your results to compare.

National League Results

April 7th, 1979

                                      Chicago   16     New York   3

                                      Cincinnati 7     San Fran   6

                                      Atlanta    7     Houston    2

                                      San Diego  6     L.A.       4  10 inn

                                      Pittsburgh 2     Montreal   1

                                      Phila      5     St. Louis  4

                        Recaps:

                   Chicago-BPI- The ball was flying out of Wrigley Field, as Chicago hit 5 homeruns in posting a league high 16 runs, as they beat the New York Mets, 16-3. Jerry Martin(1) Dave Kingman(1), and Steve Dillard(1), all homered, and Mike Ivie(2), went deep twice for the Cubs. The Cubs scored in every inning but the second and fourth. Lynn McGlothlen(1-0), got the win, while Pete Falcone(0-1), was tagged with the loss.

                   Cincinnati-BPI- Trailing 5-2, San Francisco scored 4 times in the top of the 8th, on the back of Jack Clark(1), who snapped an 0-8 start with a 3 run homer. However, in the bottom of the 8th, Dave Concepcion doubled, then the Giants Larry Hearndon committed a 2 base error. That miscue, plus a later single by Dave Collins gave the Reds a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Ray Knight(1) also homered for the Reds. Doug Bair(1-0), earned the victory, while Gary LaVelle, suffered the loss.

                    Houston-BPI- Dale Murphy committed 2 errors, but he also hit 2 homeruns(2), to lead Atlanta over Houston, 7-2. Rowland Office also went deep in the third inning. Eddie Soloman(1-0), won for the first time this year, while Joe Niekro(0-1), dropped his first decision.

                    Los Angeles-BPI- In the first extra inning game of the season, San Diego scored twice in the top of the 10th to defeat the Dodgers, 6-4. Ron Cey(1), and Steve Yeager(2), each hit 2 run homers to give L.A. the early 4-0 lead, but the Padres rallied in the 6th, scoring 4 times against Burt Hooten, to tie the game. A Davey Lopes error put the leadoff runner on in the top of the 10th, then Lerrin LaGrow(0-1), gave up a hit and two walks to put San Diego back in front. They grabbed an insurance run, then held off the Dodgers in the bottom of the tenth. Bob Owchinko(1-0) was the pitcher of record for San Diego, getting his first win.

                     Pittsburgh-BPI- A sixth inning error by Montreal's Larry Parrish was the difference in a 2-1 Pittsburgh win over Montreal. Willie Stargell(1), homered in the fourth to give the Pirates the early lead, then in the sixth, Parrish's boot allowed Bill Madlock to score Pittsburgh's second run. John Candeleria pitched a strong 7 and a third, but the Expos finally got on the scoreboard in the 8th, when Parrish doubled and later scored. Bill Lee(0-1) was the losing pitcher.

                     St. Louis-BPI- Bad defense was the culprit in this game as well, as the Cards' Garry Templeton committed 2 errors, his second allowing Greg Gross to score in the top of the 8th. That run broke a 4 all tie, and pushed the Phillies to their second win. Ted Simmons(1), homered in defeat for St. Louis. Ron Reed(1-0) was the winning pitcher, and Mark Littell(0-1), the losing hurler.

     L.A.-BPI-  In what was largely a pitcher's duel, San Diego's Eric Rasmussen(0-1), gave up an early homerun to Ron Cey(2), then allowed 2 more runs in the 8th, as the Dodgers squeaked out a 3-1 win over the Padres. Jerry Reuss(1-0) pitched 8 scoreless innings for Los Angeles. Steve Garvey will miss his next game with a mild foot sprain.

                                        Houst 2        L.A.  1

 

                                          only games scheduled

 

 

             Recaps:

 

     Atl-BPI- Cincinnati's Tom Seaver(1-0) outdueled Atlanta's, Tony Brizzolara(0-1), to win a 1-0 battle with the Braves. Seaver set down the first 12 he faced before walking Bob Horner in the fifth. He carried a no hitter into the sixth, when Rowland Office doubled with 2 out, one of only two hits the big right hander allowed on the day. He surrendered a second two bagger to Bruce Benedict, but stranded both runners. Seaver fanned 6 in the effort.

              Brizzolara pitched well himself, scattering 7 hits in 8 full innings. He struck out 5 and walked just one batter. Cincinnati scratched out their only run in the 3rd. Dave Concepcion singled with one out, advanced on a Seaver sacrifice, then scored on a Ken Griffey double.

 

     Houst-BPI- Rick Sutcliffe(1-1) gave up a pair of runs in the home second, as Terry Puhl and Forsch each had an rbi single, and then Ken Forsch(1-0) held the Dodgers scoreless until Ron Cey and Darrel Thomas each doubled in the 8th to give them their first, and what turned out to be, only run of the game.

National   League  Results

April 10th, 1979

 

                                                                         Cincinnati   3          Atlanta   2

                                                                         Los Angeles 6         Houston  3

                                                                         New York    2         Montreal  1

                                                                         St. Louis       10      Chicago       8

 

 

                                                     Game Recaps:

 

                                 Atlanta-BPI-  Cincinnati's Frank Pastore(1-0) went into the bottom of the 9th inning at Atlanta, nursing a 3-1 lead over the Braves. He gave up a two out single to Joe Nolan, and an rbi triple to Barry Bonnell, but was able to get Glenn Hubbard to fly out, as the Reds hung on to beat Atlanta, 3-2. Johnny Bench(3) smacked a solo homerun in the second inning, and scored 2 of Cincinnati's 3 runs. Atlanta's Bo McLaughlin(0-1) took the loss.

                                                      The Reds suffered a huge injury when shortstop Dave Concepcion badly twisted his right ankle, while rounding the bases in the third inning. He will be out of action for 15 days.

 

                                  Houston-BPI- A less than sharp J.R. Richard(1-1) walked in runs in both the first and fourth innings, and gave up 5 in total, as the Dodgers cruised past the Astros, 6-3. L.A.'s Don Sutton(2-0) picked up his second win of the young season, in six innings of work. Reggie Smith, Steve Garvey and Ron Cey all had multi hit games, while Steve Yeager doubled and knocked in two runs.

                                                      For Houston, Enos Cabell had a pair of hits, and the Astros also lost Alan Ashby to injury for the next 5 days.

 

                                   Montreal-BPI- The Expos lost a heartbreaker to the Mets, thanks to a 2 base error by left fielder, Jerry White in the bottom of the 9th inning. The two lefty starters, Dan Schatzader and Skip Lockman each battled 7 innings to a 1-1 tie. With the score knotted, Expos reliever, Stan Bahnsen(0-1), retired Lee Mazilli to start the last of the 9th, but then gave up a single to Ed Kranepool and a walk to John Stearns. Ross Grimsley replaced Bahnsen, and retired Jack Youngblood for out number two, but then Dan Norman lofted a fly ball to White in left field. The ball was misplayed, allowing Kranepool to score the winning run.

                                                         New York's Andy Hassler(1-0), who had a rough outing in Chicago 2 days ago, redeemed himself, setting the Expos down in order in the 9th.

 

                                     Philadelphia-BPI-  Pittsburgh's Dave Parker hit for the cycle, and John Milner(1) also homered, as the Pirates hammered the Phillies, 11-4. Parker doubled in the first, singled in the fourth, homered(2) in the sixth, and tripled in the ninth, to complete the seldom seen batting feat.  The Cobra scored twice and knocked in 5 runs on the day. John Milner added his first homer and also doubled, along with Willie Stargell, who doubled twice. Phil Garner also had two hits. Don Robinson(1-0) collected his first win of the year, while Montreal's Larry Christenson(0-1) was the loser.

                                                                  The injury bug continues to strike National League players, as Tim Foli was hurt in this one, and will miss 5 days.

 

                                      San Francisco-BPI- Darrell Evans(1), homered and doubled, driving in 4 Giant runs, but when he reached base on San Diego's 3rd error of the game in the 8th, that was the straw that broke the Padres back.  San Diego had tied the game at 4 in the top of the eighth, largely due to a Gene Tenace(1) homerun. But in the bottom half of the inning, Evans reached on an error, and 2 hits and a sacrifice fly later, the Giants took the lead for good. Ed Halicki(1-0) earned the win, while San Diego's Steve Mura(0-1) was tagged with the loss.

 

                                        St. Louis-BPI-  In the wildest game of the day, featuring five lead changes, the Cardinals Jerry Mumphrey(1), belted a 2 run homerun in the bottom of the  eighth off Bill Caudill(0-1), to give St. Louis a 10-8 comeback win over the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs batted around in the 3rd, scoring 4 runs, but the Cardinals answered quickly, sending 10 men to the plate in the fourth, adding 5 runs to their total. Gary Templeton was 4-5, with a triple and 4 rbi's, Mumphrey had a 3 hit day, including his homer, Ted Simmons(2), homered and doubled, and George Hendrick doubled and drove in 2 runs. Mark Littlell(1-1) worked a scoreless 8th and 9th for the win.

                                                               For Chicago, Dave Kingman continued his torrid start to the season, including a double, 2 runs scored and 4 runs batted in. Ivan Dejesus, Jerry Martin, Barry Foote, and Bill Buckner, all had multi hit games.

The Cobra was one of my favorites as a young fan.  I still remember his throw to home plate in an All-Star game (1980?)

It was 1979, at the Kingdome in Seattle.

I watched it a few months ago, when out local Root Sports station showed it (having never seen it at the time, since I was stationed overseas).
