Hooton Tosses 1-Hitter; Bums Claim 2 of 3 from Cards
ONE – Keith Hernandez doubled twice and drove in
4 runs to lead St. Louis to a 6-4 win at Los Angeles. It was the 10th
consecutive loss for the Dodgers. Pete
Vukovich (8-10) tossed 8 innings of shutout ball. Steve Garvey went 4-for-4, including a 3-run blast for LA.
GAME TWO – Burt Hooton (11-10) figured out how to get the Bums in the win column again and Garry Templeton finally figured out how to solve Hooton’s knuckle-curve. The surly St. Lou SS broke up Hooton’s no-hit bid with 1 out in the 9th. LA won 7-0.
GAME THREE – Dave Lopes single in the B10 led to a 7-6 walk-off winner for LA. This game got wild in the final innings with the Cardinals plating 4 in the 8th and 9th. The Dodgers scored 5 in the 8th and 9th with Garvey’s (21,22) 2-run blast in B9 sending the game into extras.
