Cincinnati staged a furious miracle rally at Houston, overcoming an 8-2 deficit after six with Astro ace Larry Dierker on the hill. John Bench hit a 2-run homer, a sac fly, and a decisive 3-run bomb for the Reds. Never say die, Rhinelanders.
The Braves looked lethargic in being blanked by Clay Kirby for 8 innings at San Diego, but managed to plate two in the tenth against fireman Frank "Double" Reberger. The Pods plated one in the last of the tenth, but Cecil Upshaw hung on for the win, to keep the Atlantans tied with Cincinnati, six and a half back.
Finally, Phils lefty Grant Jackson flirted with a no-no against the Expos, but Ty Cline lined a clean single to lead off the seventh. It was the only hit the Expos would get.
