                                                                        Los Angeles   3             Houston    0

                                                                        Montreal        4            New York   2   12 inn

                                                                        Pittsburgh      7            Philadelphia 3

                                                                        San Francisco 5            San Diego   3

 

 

 

                    Game Recaps:

 

          Atlanta-BPI- Cincinnati's George Foster(3) belted his 3rd homerun, and Joe Morgan(1) hit his first, to lead the Reds pasta the Braves, 3-1. Fred Norman(1-0) went six innings to earn the win, while Atlanta's Freddie Soloman(1-1), took the loss.

 

           Houston-BPI- L.A.'s Burt Hooton(1-0), and Dave Patterson combined to blank the Astros in a 3-0 win, while an rbi single from Davey Lopes, and a 2 run homerun from Steve Garvey(1), provided the Dodger offense. Hooton worked out of jams in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings, in keeping the Astros off the scoreboard. Houston's Joe Niekro(0-2) lost for the second straight outing. You can add another player to the D.L., as Von Joshua will miss the next 3 days.

 

          New York-BPI- Montreal's Ellis Valentine(1) clubbed a 2 run homerun off Tom Hausman(0-1), in the top of the 12th inning, as the Expos defeated the Mets, 4-2. Montreal struck first with a run in the fourth, then a Gary Carter(1) solo homerun in the sixth gave the Expos a 2-0 lead. The Mets John Stearns(2) hit a solo shot in the 7th to cut the lead in half. New York tied the game in the bottom of the 9th when Woodie Fryman gave up two straight singles, and Jim Mason booted a ball at third that allowed Stearns to score the tying run. Elias Sosa(1-0) retired the Mets in order in the 10th and 11th, before Valentine's homer gave Montreal the 2 run advantage.

 

         Philadelphia-BPI- Pittsburgh won their 3rd in a row, getting homeruns from Phil Garner(1), and Bill Robinson(1), enroute to a 7-3 win and a sweep of the Phillies. Bert Blyleven(1-1) pitched six scoreless innings, before Bake McBride tripled in a run in the seventh. McBride himself then scored on an Elliot Maddox single. Dave Parker stayed hot, with a double and a single, and Omar Moreno chipped in with a pair of hits and two stolen bases. Steve Carlton(1-1) was the loser, and gave up both Pirate homeruns.

 

          San Francisco-BPI- It looked as if San Diego's Gaylord Perry(0-2) might get the Padres on track, as he took a 2-1 lead into the 7th against Bob Knepper and the Giants. However, San Francisco showed why they're in front in the N.L. West. Perry allowed the tying run to score, then gave way to Mark Lee. Jack Clark drove in two more runs with a single, as the Giants came back to win, 5-3. John Curtis(1-0) got the win for San Francisco. Dave Winfield(1) homered in defeat for San Diego.

National League Results

April 12, 1979

 

                                  Los Angeles   3        Atlanta   1

                                  Philadelphia  8        New York  1

                                  Pittsburgh    6        St. Louis 5  11 inn

                                  San Diego     6        San Francisco 3

 

                                           only games played

 

  Game recaps:

     Los Angeles-BPI- Jerry Reuss pitched 7 and one third innings of no hit ball, but struggled with control in the 8th, walking 3 and losing a shutout bid. Lerrin LaGrew came on in relief, and the Dodgers and Reuss(2-0), got the win by a 3-1 margin over the Atlanta Braves. Reuss retired the first 11 he faced, losing a chance for a perfect game when he hit Dale Murphy with a pitch in the fourth inning. Errors by Jerry Royster and Jeff Burroughs led to a pair of Dodger runs in the 3rd, then in the 6th, Steve Garvey(2) hit his second homerun of the year, giving L.A. a 3-0 lead.

                       Reuss got the first out in the eighth, and after walking Darrel Chaney, surrendered the first hit of the ballgame, a sharp single to right by Pepe Frias. Pinch hitter Eddie Miller popped out, but Reuss then walked Rowland Office and Royster, to force in Chaney with the Braves only run. LaGrew came in and struck out Murphy, then worked a scoreless 9th. Rick Matula(1-1) was tagged with the loss.

 

     New York-BPI- Philadelphia put up a 5 spot against Craig Swan(1-1) in the second inning, the key blow being a bases clearing triple by Garry Maddox. Along with the three bagger, the Phis center fielder had 2 doubles and a single, while scoring twice. Like Jerry Reuss in the Atlanta game, Phil's starter, Randy Lerch(1-0) was terrific to start. He was perfect through five, retiring the first 15 Mets he faced, but Ed Kranepool singled to break up the no hitter in the sixth. The Phillies all but put the game out of reach in the seventh, when Mike Schmidt(1) smashed a 3 run homerun off reliever, Dwight Bernard. N.Y.'s Doug Flynn(1) spoiled Lerch's shutout try with his first homerun of the season in the bottom of the eighth.

 

     Pittsburgh-BPI- Pittsburgh's Steve Nicosa hit a pinch hit double off Darold Knowles((0-1) in the bottom of the 11th inning, then Omar Moreno singled in the game winning run, as the Pirates kept their win streak going in thrilling fashion, with a 6-5 extra inning win against St. Louis.

                     The Bucs staked John Candeleria to a 4-0 lead in the first, thanks to a 2 run homer by Dale Berra(1), a 2 base error by Steve Henderson that put Dave Parker on second, and a double by Willie Stargell. It didn't take long for the Cards to come roaring back, as they cut the lead in half, the very next inning. Ken Oberkfell and Ken Reitz each doubled, then Tony Scott tripled to make it 4-2 Pittsburgh. Candeleria gave up another triple to Gary Templeton, who scored on a Keith Hernandez single in the third. Oberkfell and Reitz repeated themselves in the fourth, once again coming through with back to back two base hits, the former scoring to tie the game at 4 apiece. The Cards starter, Pete Vuckovich left for a pinch hitter, but Pittsburgh stayed with the Candy Man, who although he was hit hard early, kept St. Louis scoreless in the 5th, 6th, and 7th.

                     Berra came through with a clutch double in the last of the seventh, then Ed Ott singled in Berra with the go ahead run. Grant Jackson worked a scoreless 8th, then Kent Tekulve(1-0) came on to try and close it out in the top of the 9th. He retired Reitz and Scott, but pinch hitter, Terry Kennedy, doubled, putting the tying run on second base. Templeton hit a clean single to center to, once again, tie the game. Pittsburgh stayed with Tekulve, who worked a clean 10th and 11th, to set up the dramatic finish in the bottom of the 11th inning.

                     To make matters worse for St. Louis, starting catcher, Ted Simmons, was injured in the game, and will be out until April 18th.

 

     San Francisco-BPI- The Padres scored 5 runs in the top of the third off Ed Whitson(0-1), and that was too much for the Giants to overcome, as they dropped a 6-3 decision to San Diego. Bob Shirley(1-0) allowed just one run in seven innings to earn the win. Whitson got the first two outs in the fateful inning, but then allowed 2 singles, a walk, two more singles and another free pass, before reliever, John Curtis took over. The Giants Darrell Evans(2) managed a 2 run homer in the bottom of the 9th off Rollie Fingers, but it was too little, too late for the Giants at that point.

National   League   Results

April 13, 1979

 

                               Los Angeles     6          Atlanta     3

                               Pittsburgh      2          St. Louis   1

                               San Diego       2          Cincinnati  0

                               Houston         6          San Fran    2

                                          only   games   played

 

 

          Game Recaps:

 

                  Los Angeles-BPI- The Dodgers broke a 2-2 tie with Atlanta by scoring 3 times off reliever, Adrian Devine(0-1), and once off Bo McLaughlin, to defeat the Braves, 6-3. Reggie Smith(1) hit a 2 run homer off Tony Brizzolara in the bottom of the 3rd, giving L.A. a 2-1 lead. Atlanta's Bob Horner(1) answered with a circuit clout of his own off Rick Sutcliffe, to tie the game. Devine relieved Brizzolara after six innings, and got out of a jam with two men on in the seventh, but in the eighth, Smith doubled to lead off, and Steve Garvey singled him in. Gary Thomasson reached on a walk, and Devine was lifted for McLaughlin. Steve Yeager then hit a 2 run double, with both runs charged to Devine. Ted Martinez would later hit the 3rd double of the inning, bringing in the fourth Dodger run. Bob Welch(1-0) pitched the top of the 8th for L.A., and was therefore, the pitcher of record.

 

     Pittsburgh-BPI- The Pirates won for the sixth straight time, edging St. Louis, 2-1. All runs in the game came via solo homeruns, with Tony Scott(1) hitting one for the Cardinals, and Willie Stargell(3), and Phil Garner(2), slugging homers for Pittsburgh. Bruce Kison(2-0) won for the second time this year, while Bob Forsch(0-1) took the loss. Jim Bibby did a great job in relieving Kison after 6 innings. He struck out four batters in the 7th and 8th for the hold, then Enrique Romo came in to notch his first save in the ninth.

 

     San Diego-BPI- Eric Rasmussen(1-1) tossed a shutout against the Cincinnati Reds, as San Diego got a much needed win, 2-0. Fernando Gonzalez doubled in Jerry Turner in the 3rd, then in the 7th, Gene Richards singled, stole second, and scored on a Turner basehit. Russmussen only fanned one batter, but also walked just one, scattering six hits in the win. Bill Bonham(1-1) drops to one and one with the loss.

 

     San Francisco-BPI- The Astros got to John Montefusco(1-1) early, as the Giants starter only lasted 3 innings. In that span, he gave up 3 runs(2 earned), 5 hits and 2 walks. Cesar Cedeno(1) hit his first homerun of the season in the 6th, to give Joquin Andujar(1-1) a 4-0 lead. The Astro's starter stumbled in the bottom of the seventh, allowing 2 runs, before Randy Niemann came on to put out the fire. Houston added two more runs in the top of the 9th to ice the game.

                            Houston        4          San Francisco    2

 

                                        only   games   played

 

 

          Game recaps:

 

                   Los Angeles-BPI- Atlanta's Eddie Miller pinch ran for pitcher, Phil Niekro(1-1), who reached first on an unsuccessful fielder's choice in the top of the 8th inning. With one out, Jerry Royster popped out to third, but then Rowland Office laced a double into the gap, and the speedy Miller scored all the way from first. That broke a 2-2 time, then Gene Garber pitched a scoreless 8th and 9th to preserve the win for Niekro.

                   Both teams scored twice in the first inning on 2 run homeruns. Bob Horner(2) first for Atlanta, then Gary Thomasson(1) answered with his first of the season. L.A.'s Doug Rau(0-1) took the loss.

 

     Montreal-BPI- Montreal's Larry Parrish(1) smacked a 3 run clout in the bottom of the 7th off Chicago's Ken Holtzman(0-1), and that was the difference in the game, as the Expos defeated the Cubs, 5-2. Back in action after several rainouts, Chicago fell behind 2-0, but Steve Dillard(2) cut the lead in half with his second homerun of the year off Bill Lee(1-1), in the top of the fifth.

                   In the bottom of the sixth, Holtzman walked Gary Carter and Tony Perez, back to back, the Parrish connected, with a deep blast into the centerfield bleachers. Lee tried for the complete game, but gave up a run on 3 hits in the top of the 9th, before Dave Palmer came on to finish things up.

 

     Pittsburgh-BPI- St. Louis ended Pittsburgh's win streak, defeating the Pirates at Three Rivers Stadium, 5-3. Silvio Martinez(2-0) won for the second time, while Don Robinson(1-1) drops to .500. Pittsburgh's defense was shaky today, as John Milner and Omar Moreno both committed 2 base errors in the outfield. Doubles by Ken Oberkfell and Tony Scott gave the Cards a 2-0 lead in the top of the fourth. Pittsburgh didn't take long to respond, as Milner(1) belted a homerun off Martinez in the bottom of the fourth, then Bill Robinson and Phil Garner both hit two baggers, to quickly tie the game.

                     The top of the fifth was Robinson's last, and it was the turning point of the game. Robinson allowed 3 straight singles, the first to Gary Templton, who was thrown out trying to steal. However, Jerry Mumphery and Keith Hernandez each singled, and then Ken Reitz popped out. Terry Kennedy restarted the rally with a basehit, and Oberkell followed suit, as St. Louis went up, 4-2. Garner(3) homered in the bottom of the 8th to bring the Pirates within one, but a pair of walks by Jim Rooker, and a double by Templeton, put the game away for the Redbirds.

 

     San Diego-BPI- Cincinnati's Tom Seaver, and San Diego's Randy Jones battled each other into the 9th inning, but both came away with no decisions, and it took a walkoff homerun from Dave Winfield(1), in the bottom of the 10th for the Padres to pull out the win. Jones was the Padres early offense as well, smashing a 2 run triple in the bottom of the second, to put San Diego out front, 2-0. Cincinnati closed to within one, when Jones loaded the bases with now outs in the top of the fourth. Rick Auerbach hit into a double play, with Joe Morgan scoring on the play.

                    The Reds trailed by one until the top of the 9th. With Jones still on the mound, backup catcher, Vic Correll stroked a leadoff double. Auerbach, the next batter, lined a ball to left which was muffed by Jerry Turner for a 2 base error. That of course, scored Corell with the tying run. Turner was in for Winfield, who started the game on the bench, with some calf tightness. After Jones walked Driessen, he was lifted for Steve Mura(1-1), who struck out pinch hitter, Cesar Geronimo, then got Paul Blair to hit into an inning ending double play. Mura set down the Reds in the top of the 10th, then with one out in the bottom of the 10th, Winfield indicated he could pinch hit. He swung at a center cut fastball from reliever, Frank Pastore(1-1), and sent it into the San Diego sky, giving the Padres their 3 straight win.

 

     San Francisco-BPI- Houston's Ken Forsch(2-0) pitched six innings of scoreless ball, until he gave up a 2 run homer to Darrell Evans(3), in the seventh inning. Forsch left the game at that point, but he got credit for the win, in a 4-2 Astros victory. Enos Cabell had an rbi double and a sacrifice fly, and Art Howe had two hits and two runs scored for Houston. Vida Blue(0-1) was the losing pitcher for San Francisco.

Houston-BPI- The Astros used a 16 hit attack, scoring 4 runs off Mike LaCoss in the first inning, as Houston defeated Cininnati, 6-1. J.R. Richard pitched a six hit, complete game, allowing just one run in the 3rd inning.

HR COSTLY IN METS LOSS TO EXPOS

 

Montreal-BPI- The Mets lost a 3-1 heartbreaker to the Expos in Montreal. N.Y.'s Pete Falcone pitched 5 innings of no hit ball, until Rodney Scott singled to start the 6th. Falcone then walked Jerry White, and gave up a crushing 3 run homer to Warren Cromartie, one of only 3 hits the Mets pitcher allowed on the day. Richie Hebner had hit a solo homer in the top of the fifth against Scott Sanderson, but Cromartie's blow an inning later, would trump Hebner's, allowing Sanderson to go on and complete the game and earn the win.

St. Louis-BPI- Nino Espinosa lost his shutout bid, with 1 out in the 9th, but with six runs of support, including a 3 run homerun by Mike Schmidt, the Phillies and Espinosa, easily beat St. Louis, by a 6-1 margin. Espinosa allowed back to back singles to Bernie Carbo and Lou Brock, then a double to Ken Oberkfell, to put the Cards on the board, after failing to score for 8 innings. Tug McGraw came in and prevented any further scoring by St. Louis.

                              LP-Candeleria(1-1)

 

                       Chicago-BPI-  The Chicago Cubs tagged Pittsburgh's John Candeleria for 5 runs over five and a third innings, to topple the first place Bucs, 5-1. Candeleria sailed through the first two innings, but gave up 2 runs on 3 hits, including a pair of doubles in the third, 3 more hits and another run in the fourth, and a walk and two singles, before leaving the game with one out in the sixth. Willie Stargell accounted for Pittsburgh's lone run in the fourth, off Lynn McGlothen.

                             WP-Niekro,J.(1-2)            

                             LP-Norman(1-1)

 

               Houston-BPI-  The Astros won their fourth straight game against struggling Cincinnati, as Joe Niekro tossed a 4 hit shutout against the Redlegs. The Reds had plenty of chances, as Niekro walked five, and also hit a batter, but they were unable to cash in any opportunities. A double by Bruce Bochy, a Terry Kennedy error, and a walk to Jeff Leonard, put Bochy in position to score on an Art Howe sac fly, to give the Astro's the 1-0 lead in the fourth. Cesar Cedeno doubled and scored in the 8th, to tack on another run for Houston.

 

 

                    Atl      0   0   0   2   0   1   0   0   1     4   12   1

                        LP-Mahler(0-1)                L.A.: Baker(2), Yeager(3)

 

                Los Angeles-BPI- Steve Yeager hit a game winning homerun in the bottom of the 9th inning, just after Atlanta's Jeff Burroughs had tied the game with a pinch hit homerun in the top of the 9th, giving the Dodgers a wild home win, 5-4, over the Braves. Joe Nolan tripled in a run, and later scored in the fourth, to put Atlanta on top, 2-0. Ron Cey smacked a 2 run homer in the bottom of that inning to quickly tie the game. Atlanta regained the lead in the top of the sixth on a Dale Murphy solo blast, but just as fast, the Dodgers retook the lead, when Davey Lopes reached on a Pepe Frias error, then Dusty Baker sent one deep, to make it, 4-3 Los Angeles. In the top of the ninth, Jeff Burroughs pinch hit for Craig Skok, and hammered a knuckleball out of the yard off Charlie Hough, to tie the game at 4. Hough finished the inning, and with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, Yeager homered off Atlanta's Mickey Mahler, to win it for the Dodgers.

                 N.Y.      0   0   0   1   1   3   0   0   0     5   8   0

                 Mont      0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   1     1  11   1

                        WP-Kobel(1-0)            HR-N.Y.: Youngblood(1)

                        LP-Schatzader(0-1)

               Montreal-BPI- Despite being outhit by the Expos, 11-8, the Mets scored more runs, and of course, that's what counts, as New York easily beat Montreal, 5-1. Kevin Kobel earned the complete game win, losing a shutout when the Expos pushed across a run in the bottom of the 9th. The Mets got to Dan Schatzader in the middle innings. Joel Youngblood hit his first homer of the year in the fourth, then a walk and a pair of singles led to another Mets run in the fifth. Steve Henderson led off the sixth with a double, and a walk, and a single later, Schatzader was in the clubhouse, trailing, 5-0.

                     S.F.      1   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     1   8   1

                     S.D.      0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     0   4   0

                            WP-Knepper(1-1)              

                            LP-Perry(0-3)

                 San Diego-BPI- The Giants' Bob Knepper won a West Coast pitcher's duel with Gaylord Perry, blanking the Padres, 1-0. Darrell Evans singled and scored on a Jack Clark double in the first, and that proved to be the only run of the ballgame. San Diego stranded runners on second and third in the bottom of the first, and also had two runners on in the sixth, but Knepper retired the side in order in the 2sd, 5th, 7th, 8th and 9th. Padres outfielder, Gene Richards was injured in the fifth, and will be out of action for the next 8 days.

                       Phila      0   0   0   0   3   0   0   0   0   0     3   6   1

                            WP-Thomas(1-0)             HR-Phila: Maddox(1), Trillo(1)

                            LP-McGraw(0-1)                St.Louis: Tyson(1)

                  St.Louis-BPI- Ken Oberkfell doubled in the bottom of the 10th off Tug McGraw, then Keith Hernandez singled him home, as the Cardinals beat the Phillies, 4-3 in extra innings. A Larry Bowa error cost the Phillies in the first, as Oberkfell's triple gave the Cards a 1-0 lead. A pair of homers, a solo shot by Manny Trillo, and a 2 run bomb by Garry Maddox, off Pete Vuckovich, who has already given up 4 on the year, put Philadelphia in front, 3-1 in the top of the fifth. St. Louis' Mike Tyson pinch hit for Vuckovich in the bottom of the 6th, and he homered to make it a one run game. With Phils starter, Dick Ruthven out, the Cards tied it against Kevin Saucier in the last of the sixth. Neither club could rally until Oberkfell's two out double in the bottom of the tenth.

                  Chicago       0   0   0   0   2   3   1   0   x     6  12   2

            Chicago-BPI-  Ivan DeJesus' 3 run homerun in the bottom of the 6th inning was the big blow in Chicago's 6-4 comeback win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Neither club could plate a run through the first four innings, with Dejesus being thrown out at home by George Hendrick, while trying to score on a double by Barry Foote. However an error and back to back doubles by Steve Swisher and Tony Scott put the Cards up 3-0 in the fifth. The Cubs answered with 2 in the bottom of the fifth, then DeJesus' blast put them up, 5-3. Foote scored on a sac fly to increase the Chicago lead to 6-3 in the last of the seventh. St. Louis scratched out one more run when George Hendrick tripled in Keith Hernandez in the top of the 8th, but that would be as close as they would come. Chicago's Ken Henderson was banged up, and will be out for 3 days.

        WP-Lamp(1-0)   LP-Forsch,B.(0-2)                 HR-Chic: DeJesus(1)

                   Atlanta     1   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   3     4   6   3

                   Cincinnati  0   3   1   3   0   0   3   0   x    10  12   2

               Cincinnati-BPI- Cincinnati put up double figures against the Braves, without hitting a ball out of the park. 12 hits, half of them for extra bases, and 3 Atlanta errors, did the job nicely. Every regular in the Reds lineup drove at least one run, except for George Foster, and everyone scored at least one run run except for Rick Auerbach, who filled in for still injured, Dave Concepcion. Dan Driessen doubled and tripled, while Ray Knight and Ken Griffey each doubled, along with Joe Morgan. Reds starter, Bill Bonham gave up a run in the first, but hoped for the complete game. It was not to be, as Atlanta broke through in the 9th when Bonham issued consecutive free passes, then allowed a double to Pepe Frias and a triple to Rowland Office.

                  WP-Bonham(2-1)   LP-Matula(1-2)

                Houston      0   4   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     4   5   0

                Los Angeles  0   0   0   0   0   0   0   3   0     3   9   0

                    Los Angeles-BPI- L.A.'s Jerry Reuss faltered in the second inning, allowing 3 walks and 3 hits, which led to a 4-0 cushion for Joaquin Andujar and the Houston Astros. The pitcher took the lead and ran, keeping a strong Dodger club off the scoreboard for seven innings. Andujar finally buckled in the eighth, surrendering singles to Reggie Smith and Steve Garvey, before Steve Yeager connected on his 4th homerun of the year. Andujar left for Vern Ruhle, who set down the next 3 Dodgers in order, then worked out of a big jam in the bottom of the 9th. Ruhle got two quick outs, but gave up singles to Darrell Thomas and Smith, before getting Garvey to pop out to end the game. In another blow for Houston, right after getting Alan Ashby back, reserve catcher, Bruce Bochy was injured, and will log 3 days on the D.L.

              WP-Andujar(2-1)   LP-Reuss(2-1)          HR-L.A.: Yeager(4)

               New York      1   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   1     2  10   0

               Montreal      1   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   2     3   7   0

                  Montreal-BPI- Chalk up another heartbreaking loss for the New York Mets. After snapping a 1-1 tie by scoring off Montreal's Rudy May in the top of the 9th, New York's bullpen again came up short, as Tom Hausman gave up a walk to Gary Carter, and a double to Rusty Staub in the bottom of the 9th. Skip Lockwood came in and got two big outs, but pinch hitter Tony Perez singled in both runners to give the Expos the thrilling walkoff win. Each club plated a run in the first, then neither could bring a run around until the wild 9th.

               WP-May(1-0)   LP-Hausman(0-2)

       

            Philadelphia      0   0   0   0   0   0   1   0   0     1   10   0

            Pittsburgh        1   0   0   0   0   1   0   0   x     2    8   0

                      Pittsburgh-BPI- Bruce Kison outdueled Steve Carlton, edging the Phil's ace lefthander, 2-1, to win his 3rd straight decision. In the bottom of the first, Omar Moreno singled, stole second, then scored on back to back passed balls by Tim McCarver. Kison made that run hold up, thanks to some nifty pitching and 3 Pirate double plays. The Bucs tacked on another run in the sixth, when Phil Garner and Bill Robinson both hit two baggers off Carlton. Philadelphia finally got on the board in the top of the seventh, when Greg Luzinski doubled and scored on a Larry Bowa basehit. Jim Bibby came in and faced one batter, getting Manny Trillo to hit into a double play, then Kent Tekulve worked the 8th and 9th for the save.

                 WP-Kison(3-0)   LP-Carlton(1-2)

 

                San Francisco      3   0   4   0   0   0   0   0   0     7   8   0

                San Diego          0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   1     1   7   2

                   San Diego-BPI- San Diego's Bob Shirley was hit hard and often, leaving the game in the top of the 3rd, trailing, 7-0. Mike Ivie, who has 6 hits on the season, with 3 of them homeruns, belted a 3 run bomb in the first, then in the 3rd, a Kurt Bevaqua error, and singles by Jack Clark and Ivie, plus a double by Joe Strain, gave the Giants four more runs. Meanwhile, the Giants' Ed Whitson was pitching one of the best games of his career. Whitson blanked the Padres through eight, fanning 7 and walking 4 along the way, but the pesky bottom of the 9th showed why shutouts are hard to come by sometimes. 3 singles in that stanza led to Jay Johnstone scoring San Diego's only run, but Whitson hung in to earn his first complete game in a rout.

                WP-Whitson(1-1)   LP-Shirley(1-1)        HR-S.F.: Ivie(3)

Dave Kingman seems awfully quiet.

I sure wouldn't want to be on the hill when we wakes up.

Kingman hasn't homered since April 7th, but he has 2, and the league lead at this point is only 4. Plus, he's batting .407, which is a lot better than Mike Schmidt(5-29 .172, 2 HR's), or worse, Greg Luzinski(3-25 .120 0 HR's).
