Giants Tackle Reds in Cincy.


Game 1,

A great pitching duel between Seaver and Vida Blue until the 5th inning. The Reds plated a run in the bottom of the 5th then the Giants retaliated with a run of their own in the 6th inning on a Jack Clark solo blast. Cincy broke the game open and sent Blue to the showers with a 5 run outburst in their half of the sixth inning. Tom Seaver Collects his 9th win as Blue was tagged with the loss to fall to 6-9.  Reds 8...Giants 5.

Game 2,

Bill Bonham was off his game and lasted until the 6th inning with 2 outs. Bonham exited after surrendering  7 runs. Terry Whitfield collected 3 hits and scored a run to make a winner of Jim Barr (3-6). Barr went the distance for the complete game shutout.  Giants 7....Reds 0.

Game 3,

Willie McCovey had a big day with 3 hits and a towering homerun to upend the Reds in the third game of the series.  Fred Norman was rocked for 6 runs and saw his record on the season sink to 4-12 and his ERA rise to 4.76.  "The Count" Montefusco was the starter for San Francisco and notched the victory to even his record at 7-7.  Giants 8....Reds 2.

Game 4,

George Foster smashed his 22nd homerun of the season and drove in four runs but it was not enough to defeat the surprisingly hot visiting Giants.  Catcher Marc Hill swung the hot lumber with his 5th homerun of the year and drove in 4 RBI.  Giants 10...Reds 7.
