Sens Down Sox (Red Variety)

Washington is off to a nice 4-2 start, taking another series at RFK.

Game One: Was 4, Boston 2
W: Coleman (1-0)
L: Lonborg (0-1)
S: Pina (2)

Boston's Jim Lonborg, trying to come back to his 1967 form after a series of injuries, allows three Washington runs in the bottom of the second, including a two run double from 37-year-old former Dodger John Roseboro.

Game Two: Boston 5, WAS 5 (19 innings)
W: Phillips (1-0)
L: Grzenda (0-1)
S: Lonborg (1)

Sparky Lyle blows a 5-3 Boston lead in the bottom of the ninth, as Tim Cullen drives in two with a single, wiping out Boston's early lead on Reggie Smith's second homer. No one can score for quite a while after that, until Tony Conigliario hits his first of the year in the top of the 19th off Joe Grzenda, Washington's last pitcher off the bench, for the win. Lonborg, who pitched yesterday, comes in and gets the save.

Game Three: WAS 3, BOS 0
W: Cox (2-0)
L: Peters (0-2)

New starter Casey Cox again is outstanding for Washington, pitching a seven hit complete game shutout. Eddie Brinkman's two run single in the seventh, after Washington had moved men to second and third, was key to the win.
