Reds Take 2 of 3 from Padres in Cincy.

Riverfront Stadium,

Game 1,

Champ Summers connect for his first homerun of the season while Paul Moskau pitched 8 strong shutout innings to improve his record at 1-1.  Eric Rasmussen got the loss for San Diego and evens his record at 3-3. Reds 7...Padres 2.

Game 2,

This game required extra innings to settle the matter.  The Reds scored single runs in the 8th and 9th innings to take a 2-1 lead and the lead appeared secure.  However, Dave Winfield crushed his 13th homerun of the season off reliever Doug Bair to knot the game at 2.  The game was finally decided in the bottom of the 13th when Junior Kennedy grounded a game winning RBI single to right to score Ray Knight with the deciding run....Reds 3...Padres 2 (13 innings).

Game 3,

San Diego battered Bill Bonham and Frank Pastore as they preserved one game in the series.  Gene Richards, Kurt Bevacqua, and Bill Fahey all collected 3 hits to lead a 18 hit, 10 run offensive explosion in Cincinnati.  The recipient of this huge offensive surge was veteran Mickey Lolich who recorded his first win of the season against 2 set backs.  Padres 10...Reds 3.
