Senators Sweep Expansion Royals

Washington moves back to .500 by sweeping the three game series at RFK. KC's Amos Otis sees his 21 game hitting streak snapped.

Game One: Washington 7, KC 3
W: Coleman (3-5)
L: Rooker (0-4)

Washington gets five in the seventh inning to blow open a tight game, as Rick Reichardt doubles in two, to beat KC rookie Jim Rooker.

Game Two: Washington 4, KC 3
W: Bosman (7-2)
L: Burgmeier (1-2)

KC takes an early 3-2 lead, led by a second inning double from Joe Keough that leads to two runs off Washington ace Dick Bosman. But Washington grabs the 4-3 lead in the bottom of the eighth as reliever Tom Burgmeier blows his first save, allowing a two run single to catcher Paul Casanova. Bosman goes all the way to move to 7-2.

Game Three: Washington 4, KC 2
W; Knowles (1-1)
L: K. Wright (0-3)

KC and Washington are knotted at two after eight, as Polish Prince Moe Drabowsky wastes a 2-0 KC lead by giving up seventh inning singles from Ed Stroud and Frank Howard to tie the game. Big Frank then comes up in the bottom of the ninth with a man on and two out and pounds a two run homer, his seventh, off Ken Wright to win it.
