Dodgers take 2 of 3 from Amazin's
Dodgers take game 1 as Bill Singer bests Jon Matlack 5-3. Both Frank Robby and Bill Russell go 3 for 4 and knock in 2 runs apiece
Amazin's even up the series in a wild 10-7 affair. Game was tied 7-7 when NY scored 3 big runs off 49 year old Hoyt Wilhelm, who looks to be at the end of the road. NY sent 8 batters to the plate with Jim Fregosi doubling home 2 and Jerry Grote single home 1. Danny Frisella got the win in relief.
LA takes the rubber match on a nifty 2 hit complete game shutout by Don Sutton. Steve Garvey (2-3) knocked in 2 of LA's 4 runs. Agee and Harrelson recorded NY's only hits. Buzz Capra was chased from the mound after giving up 4 runs in 4 innings.
