As good as the Orioles were that year, would have been a shame for anyone else to win the AL.

In the battle for second place in the AL, the Yankees get only four hits.  But they make them count.  Jimmy Lyttle, who was one of the best pinch hitters in the league during the regular season, came off the bench in the bottom of the eighth and homered to give the Yankees the lead and eventual win.

It’s down to the wire in the National League, as Pat Dobson and the Padres defeat Fergie Jenkins and the Cubs 4-1 at Wrigley Field.  Chris Cannizzaro provided the muscle, launching a two-run shot in the seventh to break a 1-1 tie.  Both teams have 3-1 records.  Because neither holds a tie-breaker over the other, a fifth and final game will be played at Wrigley to decide who will face the Orioles in the championship series.  Either Ken Holtzman or Milt Pappas will start for the Cubs.  Danny Coombs will pitch for the Padres.

                             R   H   E
San Diego Padres (3-1)       4   6   1
Chicago Cubs (3-1)           1   5   1

   HR – Cannizzaro-S

In the battle for third place in the National League, a pair of Waynes (Simpson and Granger) combine for a three-hit shutout of the Mets.  Johnny Bench went yard for the Reds off Tom Seaver, who came on in relief and gave up two runs.

Next up, its the Cubs against the Padres for the pennant.  After 16 regular season games and four playoff games, it all comes down to one.

                             R   H   E
New York Mets (2-2)          0   3   1
Cincinnati Reds (2-2)        4   8   0
   W – Simpson (1-0), S – Granger
   L – Gentry (0-1)
   HR – Bench-CIN

 CUBS WIN PENNANT!
Will Face Orioles in Series


In a wild and woolly one at Wrigley, the Cubs outlasted the Padres 11-8.  A three-run homerun by Ollie Brown in the sixth off reliever Milt Pappas brought the Padres within one.  It was nail-biting time for Cubs fans, who thought they had this one in the bag twice with four run leads after the third and the sixth innings.  But in the bottom of the seventh, Jim Hickman belted a two-run blast to give the Cubs some breathing room and the eventual win.  The boxscore appears below.

Kudos to the Padres, who defied the odds and came ever so close to capturing the NL crown.  They posted a 10-1 record in the 11 games preceding this final playoff game.  They ended up with the number two ranking, finishing ahead of some tough competition.

The Cubs will square-off against the Orioles in the five-game championship series.  The likely game-one starters will be Jim Palmer and Fergie Jenkins.  It promises to be a good one.

They very well could win because of their pitching edge, which I think is a bit enhanced in their favor in the SI game.  But taking into account the way in which the starters throw (i.e., left vs right), I think the Cubs have the hitting edge.  Of course, anything can happen in a short (five game) series.  I say Orioles in five.

ORIOLES SLAM CUBS 7-0 IN SERIES OPENER


The Cubs did not look at all impressive in game one before the hometown faithful.  They committed two errors, which led to four unearned runs.  Jenkins, who didn’t help his cause by booting an easy grounder in the first, gave up 10 hits in eight innings.  The ninth was disaster icing on the train-wreck cake, as the Cubs had to use three pitchers.  Believe it or not, it could have been worse.  The Cubs’ Phil Regan came on with no outs and the bases loaded (after Milt Pappas and Jim Colborn failed to retire a single batter) and mercifully extricated the Cubs from further humiliation.

Jim Palmer was impressive.  He got the complete game, five-hit shutout without walking a single batter.  Brooks Robinson got two hits and three RBIs, including a two-run triple in the first inning.

The series moves to Baltimore for game two.  Ken Holtzman will pitch for the Cubs.  Mike Cuellar gets the start for the Orioles.

Scoreless after seven at Memorial Stadium.  Bill Hands , who got the start over Ken Holtzman, has given up three hits.  Mike Cuellar has given up two.  The bottom of the order is up for the Cubs.  The Cubs might have to pull Hands.
