Finally, Rich Allen gave the home crowd a thrill when he knocked an inside the park homer. Later in the game, he tried to knock one *over* the fence, but was denied. The Orsino Board giveth, and the Orsino Board taketh away. Anyway, so stunned was the Pittsburgh pitcher by the inside the parker, that he immediately served up a gopher ball to Johnny Callison, to make it back to back. The conquering heroes--despite another Phils loss--bounced jubilantly into the clubhouse after the game, only to find attendants starting to empty their respective lockers. Maybe Rich and John won't be back in '70? What'll be next to go, the Liberty Bell?
Oh, and....the Mets avoided mathematical elimination by defeating St. Louis.
