I remember that Kingman year very clearly . We would rush home from school to catch the last couple innings of the Cubs game , if the wind was blowing out -- look out

The Pirates are looking good out of the gate. Sitting pretty at 8-3.

Heck of a pitcher's duel in that last one though, good stuff.

Good for the Bucs! Beating Carlton is always tough

June must have been a career month, not so much the HRs and RBIs (although those are impressive), but the .329 BA jumps out.

Very clearly his best season.

If he could have done that nine or 10 times, he've been able to drench every writer in the BBWAA and still made it to the Hall.

The rat prank might have still been a little over the top, though. hmm

That rat prank is something else...I guess he didn't want females in the clubhouse.

He'd be looking for another line of work in this day and age.

                          Pittsburgh            3        Philadelphia        0

                          San Francisco         6        San Diego           0

                                         only  games  played

          Game Recaps:

               St. Louis      2   0   1   1   0   0   0   1   0     5   14   0

               Chicago        0   0   2   0   0   0   0   0   2     4    9   1

               Chicago-BPI- The Cardinals' Silvio Martinez picked up his 3rd win in as many decisions, as St. Louis beat Chicago, 5-4, holding off a late Cubs charge. The Redbirds took a 5-2 lead into the bottom of the 9th inning, when Mark Littell gave up a walk and a single with one out, then Will McEnaney issued a 2 run triple to Ivan Dejesus. McEnaney was able to buckle down and get Jerry Martin and Bill Buckner to save the win for Martinez. A Steve Dillard error led to two St. Louis runs in the first, then in the 3rd, Ken Reitz doubled and scored on a Dane Iorg single. Lou Brock singled and scored the very next inning, and in the top of the 8th, St. Louis picked up a huge insurance run when Mike Tyson walked, moved to third on a Gary Templeton double, then came in on  a Tony Scott rbi single. Martinez allowed a pair of Chicago runs in the last of the third, but settled down and kept the Cubs from scoring until leaving at the end of seven innings.

             WP-Martinez(3-0)  LP- Hernandez,W.(0-1)

          Houston      0   0   0   0   0   0   1   0   0     1  6   0

          Los Angeles  2   1   0   2   0   0   0   0   x     5  9   1

     Los Angeles-BPI- Rick Sutcliffe was dominant early, and he was staked to a 5-0 lead by his teammates, as the Dodgers picked up an easy, 5-1 win over Houston. Sutcliffe allowed just 2 hits over the first six innings, while fanning four batters. The Dodgers got out of the gate quickly against Ken Forsch, as Davey Lopes singled and stole second to start the game. Singles by Von Joshua and Steve Garvey quickly made it 2-0. Bill Russell hit his first homerun of the year in the second to increase the lead. Sutcliffe, a good hitting pitcher, singled and scored in the fifth, along with Lopes, to make it a 5-0 game. Sutcliffe faltered in the top of the 7th, giving up 2 singles and a double, as Enos Cabell came around with Houston's first run. L.A. turned the reins over to Lerrin LaGrow, who pitched a scoreless 8th and 9th.

       WP-Sutcliffe(2-1)  LP-Forsch,K.(2-1)            HR-L.A.: Russell(1)

       New York      2   0   0   0   0   5   1   0   0     8   15   1

       Montreal      0   3   1   0   0   0   1   1   0     6    8   1

      Montreal-BPI- The New York Mets trailed Montreal, 4-2, then shocked their neighbors to the north with a 5 run, 6th inning, going on to defeat the Expos, 8-6. Bill Lee gave up two runs in the top of the first, thanks to 3 singles, a Larry Parrish error, and a HBP on John Stearns. Montreal came right back against Craig Swan, scoring 3 times in the bottom of the third. Larry Parrish redeemed himself with a solo homerun in the third, for a 4-2 Expos advantage. Steve Henderson doubled off of Lee to begin the 6th. Alex Trevino singled him to third, then Dan Norman pinch hit for Swan and rapped another 2 bagger, that plated both runners. Lee was able to set down Frank Taveras and Rich Hebner, but Joel Youngblood doubled in Norman and sent Lee to the showers. Elias Sosa came on and immediately surrendered a triple to Ed Kranpool, scoring Youngblood. A Stearns single brought in Kranepool as the Mets took the lead, 7-4. New York would add one more tally in the 8th, then held their breath as Mike Scott worked the rest of the way. Rusty Staub hit a pinch hit 8th inning homer off Scott in the 7th, and a Steve Henderson two base error would give Montreal one more run in the 8th, but New York hung on to win a wild game.

        WP-Swan(2-1)  LP-Lee(1-2)             HR-Mont: Parrish(2), Staub(1)

      Philadelphia      0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     0   6   0

      Pittsburgh        2   0   1   0   0   0   0   0   x     3   5   0

      Pittsburgh-BPI-  The Pirates Don Robinson struck out 3, and walked 3, scattering 6 hits in a 3-0 blanking of Philadelphia. Omar Moreno walked and stole second off Randy Lerch in his first at bat, and two batters later, came in the easy way on Willie "Pops" Stargell's fifth homerun of the year. Robinson helped his own cause by singling in the 3rd, advancing on another Moreno free pass, then scoring on a Dave Parker basehit. The Phillies biggest threat came in the 8th, when Tim McCarver hit a one out double with Larry Bowa on. Bowa had to hold at third, due to Parker's strong arm, then Robinson got Garry Maddox and Pete Rose both to pop out. Rennie Stennett was banged up and will miss 2 days of action.

        WP- Robinson(2-1)  LP-Lerch(1-1)                 HR-Pitt: Stargell(5)

 

        San Francisco      0   4   0   0   0   0   2   0   0     6   12   0

        San Diego          0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     0    5   0

 

        San Diego-BPI- John "The Count" Montefusco joined the shutout club, whitewashing the San Diego Padres, 6-0. Montefusco gave up just 5 hits, while striking out 4 and walking 3. He also hit a batter in the second inning. The Giants got to Eric Rassmussen for 4 runs in the second, sparked by a 2 run double by Darrell Evans. The San Francisco third sacker, who is one of the leading rbi men in the early stages of the season, had two hits on the day, but left the game with back tightness, after striking out in the seventh. He is expected to miss at least 2 days. Bill North and Larry Herndon both reached on walks off Mark Lee, in the seventh, and both later scored, to give San Francisco an even bigger cushion. 

        WP-Montefusco(2-1)  LP-Rassmussen(1-2)

 Yes sir! Great start for Stargell and the Bucs! Don Robinson helping himself at the plate was nice to see. Pirates would sometimes use him as a pinch hitter

 Yes , Don Robinson and Rick Rhoden were two of the better Pirates hitting pitchers that I can recall . Rick Reuschel was pretty good too but they only had him a short time

National   League   Results

April 19th, 1979

                          Chicago             8          St. Louis              2`

                          Cincinnati          5          Atlanta                1

                          San Francisco       8          San Diego              0

               Chicago        2   0   4   0   2   0   0   0   x     8  12   2

          Chicago-BPI- Dave Kingman homered and doubled, leading the Chicago Cubs in a romp over John Denny and the Cardinals. Chicago put up 2 in the first inning, on Kingman's 2 run homer, then added four more in the 3rd, chasing Denny to an early shower. Along with Kong, Steve Ontiveros doubled and drove in two runs, and Mike Vail singled and tripled, with two runs batted in. Rick Reuschel picked up his first win for the Cubs.

           WP-Reuschel(1-2)  LP-Denny(0-2)             HR-Chic: Kingman(3)

          Atlanta      1   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     1   5   1

          Cincinnati   0   2   1   0   2   0   0   0   x     5   8   1

         Cincinnati-BPI- Cincinnati's Tom Seaver gave up a homerun to Atlanta's Jerry Royster on the first pitch of the ballgame, but it was smooth sailing from then on, as Seaver tossed a complete game 5 hit win, beating the Braves, 5-1. The Reds righty struck out 6, and uncharacteristically walked 5, but none of those baserunners came around. Cincinnati scored twice in the second off Tony Brizzolara, then added another in the third, when Dave Collins singled in Joe Morgan, who had walked and stole second, his first of two steals in the game. In the fifth, Morgan again drew a free pass and stole second, then was doubled in by Ray Knight.

           WP-Seaver(2-0)  LP-Brizzolara(0-2)    HR-Atl: Royster(1)

         San Francisco      3   4   0   0   0   1   0   0   0     8   8   1

         San Diego          0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     0   7   0

          San Diego-BPI- Jack Clark homered twice, including a second inning grand slam, and Mike Ivie went deep for the fourth time this year, and that, coupled with a shutout win for Vida Blue, spelled a long day for the Padres, who lost to the Giants, 8-0. The win moved San Francisco into a tie with the Dodgers for first place. San Diego's Randy Jones lasted just one and two thirds of an inning. He walked Rob Andrews and Clark with one out in the first, then Ivie parked one for a quick 3-0 San Francisco lead. In the second, Jones gave up singles to Johnnie LeMaster and Marc Hill, before retiring Blue on a pop out. Bill North walked to load the bases, but Jones struck out Andrews and it looked as if he might escape the jam. Jack Clark said "Not so fast", and deposited a ball into the left field bleachers, to open up a 7-0 advantage. Clark would do it again, homering off reliever, Bob Owchinko in the 8th, giving him 5 rbi's on the day. Blue, meanwhile, wasn't unhittable, scattering seven baseknocks, and walking two, but 3 double plays by the Giants helped him earn the whitewash.

            WP-Blue(1-1)   LP-Jones(0-2)          HR-S.F.: Clark 2(3) gs, Ivie(4)

The Giants-Dodgers rivalry looks like it's getting started early in the season with both teams at 9-4.
