Les Expos, Les Cubbies Split a Pair

Some good pitching in Game One, some good hitting by Montreal only in Game Two. A split at Wrigley.

Game One: Cubs 4, Expos 1

W: Jenkins (1-1)
L Stoneman (2-1)

Canadian-born Fergie Jenkins goes the entire way, striking out nine and only allowing five hits in the Cubs win. Montreal's Bill Stoneman is almost as effective, only giving up four hits and no earned runs. But he is victimized by a three run Cubs fifth, as a key throwing error by Montreal catcher John Boccabella gives way to RBI singles from Glenn Beckert and Billy Williams.

Game Two: Expos 7, Cubs 2
W: Renko (1-1)
L: Holtzman (1-2)

The Cubs' Ken Holtzman has his second poor outing, surrenduring seven runs in five innings. Montreal's six run third is punctuated by four doubles, including a scorcher from Rusty Staub off the base of the right field wall that scores two. Steve Renko goes all the way, only giving up four hits in a dominant performance.
