Phillies Split Four Games with Cincinnati

Cincinnati,

Game 1,

Henderson smacks clutch double.
Ken Henderson, filling in for struggling centerfielder Cesar Geronimo, drove in a pair of big runs to lead Cincinnati past the powerhouse Phils.  The bottom third of the Reds lineup did most of the damage driving in 4 of the Reds 5 runs in support of Fred Norman, who improves to 6-12. The loser was Randy Lerch, who falls to 6-7. Reds 5...Phillies 2.



Game 2,

Tom Seaver got rocked in this game as he surrendered six runs on eleven hurts before being lifted in the fifth inning.  Luzinski and Jerry Martin both connected for homeruns off Tom Terrific.  Steve Carlton was fantastic as he went the distance striking out seven Red batters to earn his 13th win of the year. Phillie 8...Reds 3.

Game 3,

"Bull" Luzinksi slams three homeruns in the series.
Bull Luzinski smacked two more homeruns as he went 3 for 3 with 3 runs batted in. However, this was not good enough as Foster, Griffey, and Johnny Bench also pelted homeruns to lead Cincinnati past Philadelphia.  Paul Moskau earned his 9th win of the year.  Reds 6....Phillies 3.


Game 4,

Jerry Martin smacked a bases loaded double off the wall to break a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning. All three runs scored on Martin's booming two bagger. That was all the Phillies needed to even the series.  Larry Christenson improved to 11-6 for the year. The loser in relief was Pedro Borbon. Phillies 6...Reds 2.
