|Rich Nye says the Cubs will catch the Cards. "It's science!"|
The Phillies abandoned their Quaker philosophies entirely as they practiced every kind of violence upon the poor expansion Expos. It was 9-1 until Rusty "Le Grande Orange" Staub launched a 2-out, 2-run blast in the bottom of the ninth to make the score look a little better in the morning paper.
The Mets sent kid fireballer Nolan Ryan to the hill against the Pirates, but his fielders let him down and he lost, despite giving up only one earned run. He fanned 6. Mets picket Ron Swoboda got his head stuck in a mayonnaise jar and will miss the next several games. The good news for New Yawk is that Tom Seaver goes tomorrow. He hopes Swoboda won't starve to death with his dome stuck in the Hellman's like that. However, MLB salutes the responsible flyhawk for always using condiments.
|He's got a wonderful future behind him.|
