Dodgers Reach 30 With Sweep of Cards
May 29, 1970 at St. Louis – Jim Lefebvre’s (2) 3-run blast in the T8 highlighted a 5-run inning for the Dodgers and gave them a come-back 6-5 win over St. Louis. Jose Pena (1-0) got the win in relief with Jim Brewer (11) nabbing the save. Willie Davis saved the score in the B8 by cutting down Vic Davalillo at the plate.
May 30, 1970 at St. Louis – LA sent 9 batters to the plate and scored 5 in the T1 and sailed from there to an 11-2 victory. (One of my favorite all-time names) Billy Grabarkewitz (2 hits) led the way offensively with a triple and 3 RBI. Davis chipped in 3 hits and scored thrice. Claude Osteen (5-6) tossed a complete game.
May 31, 1970 at St. Louis – Dodgers pick up the sweep and win #30 as May comes to a close. Sandy Vance (5-1), who is looking like the love-child of Sandy Koufax and Dazzy Vance, tossed 7 innings for the win. Brewer (12) hurled two for the save. Tom Haller drove in 3 runs on 2 hits in the 6-4 LA win.
