Redbirds Roast Friars

August 11, 1970 at St. Louis – It may have been a “meaningless” game in the standings, but don’t tell that to the batters on these two clubs. They combined for 37 hits in a wild 13-10 St. Louis win. Jose Cardenal (5-2-5-5), Joe Torre (5-2-4-0) and Dick Allen (5-3-3-3) paced the Redbirds (19 team hits). Dave Campbell (5-3-4-0), Cito Gaston (5-2-3-2) and Ollie Brown (5-1-3-4) led the Padres (18 team hits).

August 12, 1970 at St. Louis – Bob Gibson (16-7) fanned 12 through 7 2/3 IP to lead the Cardinals to an 8-2 victory. Cardenal again led the offense with 2 hits and 3 RBI.

August 13, 1970 at St. Louis – Al Ferrara and Ollie Brown drove in 3 runs apiece as San Diego salvaged the final game 8-7. Clay Kirby (6-15) was the winner on the hill. Jack Baldshun (1) earned the save.
