4 Game Split on the Ohio Between Reds and Astros


Game 1,

Concepcion hits 5 homeruns in the series.
The Big Red Machine flexed these muscles in the game with 5 homeruns!! Dave Conception connected for a pair and starter Tom Seaver, helped his cause with 2 long balls of his own ( Seaver already has hit 3 homeruns this season).  Reds batters crushed the Astros batters as Tom Seaver held down the Astros sticks to improve his record to 3-1.  Reds 12...Astros 2.

Game 2,

Cincinnati continued their offensive onslaught in the second game of the series.  Shortstop Dave Conception made it back to back days with with multiple homerun games!!! This was the 3rd game of the season that the slick fielding shortstop has gone deep twice in the same game.  Tom Hume and Dave Tomlin blanked the Astros lineup while surrendering a meager 5 hits.  Tom Hume still stands perfect with his 5-0 mark.  Reds 9...Astros 0.

Game 3, Doubler header,

Watson hits homerun in victory.
J.R. Richard found the cure for the Astros pitching woes against the Reds with a complete game victory over the Big Red Machine.  Richard struck out 7 batters and only allowed one measly run to record his second victory of the year.  Reds shortstop Dave Conception accounted for the only Reds run with his third consecutive game with a homerun. Davy leads the Reds in homeruns with 8.  Astros 2...Reds 1.

Game 4, second game of DH,

Houston first sacker Bob Watson hit his 3rd homerun of the season to lead the Astros to a

double header and 4 game split with the Reds.  Red starter Fred Norman was knocked out of the box in the fourth inning and was relieved by Frank Pastore.  Houston southpaw Frank Riccelli won his first victory with a solid pitching performance. Riccelli threw 5 innings of 2 hit ball but was relieved by Mclaughlin and Joe Sambito to help secure the victory.  Sambito earned his 3rd save of the year. The loss went to Fred Norman (2-3). Astros 6...Reds 3.
