The Buccos re-took third place over the idle Mets by dispatching the Expos with ease. However, Roberto Clemente dislocated his spleen while making a game-saving catch, and will miss several games. Several old biddies appeared seemingly out of nowhere to lecture the Mets about the sin of idleness.
And finally, Alan Foster trotted out of the Dodger bullpen to garner the garbage save (though he pitched very well) against the Braves, who suddenly can't get anybody out. Upon investigation , I found that Mr. Foster never had a major league save, but for me he did. "I'm proud of my garbage save," he opined.
