|Davalillo, acquired from the Angels for Jim Hicks, wonders why he is hated.|
|"Good heavens, Miss America, you're beautiful!"|

In the west, the Reds once again proved to be rude guests when they roughed up knuckleballer Phil Niekro and sent him to an early shower, then beat up some more on hapless fireman Claude Raymond. Fat Jack Fisher didn't last very long for the Rhinelanders, but Pedro Ramos snapped back to form and got the job done in relief. The Reds have taken over the top spot, but lead the Dodgers and Braves by just one game, with the Giants a game and a half back. It's anybody's division so far!
