Cincinnati breezed through the first 8 innings with a 5-1 lead behind Tom Seaver (5 hits, 7Ks).  Joe Morgan provided the offense with a 3 run shot in the 5th.  In the bottom of the 9th, the Phillies touched up the Red's bullpen for 4 runs to tie the game, then for the 2nd straight day Rich Hebner knocked home the winning run in extra innings.

Game 2: Cincinnati 16  Philadelphia 4
W: Bonham (1-1)  L: Lerch (3-1)

Phillies returned the favor hitting 4 home runs off of starter Fred Norman.  Jim Kaat threw a 4 hit shutout for his 2nd win of the season.

Game 4: Cincinnati 3  Philadelphia 1

Good pitching duel between Hume (5H, 5Ks) and Christenson (9H 6Ks).  Game ended with Rich Hebner striking out with the tying runs on base.
