Cardinals 12, Reds 9  (37-22)

The Reds tried to come back from a huge deficit, but the offense of the Cardinals finally won a game for them.  The Reds were down 12-1 but scored in three in the seventh and five in the ninth to make it a three run game.  Their comeback fell short though and they took the loss.

Rookie starter Santo Alcala was shelled. He dropped to 6-2 on the season and gave up five runs (four earned) on five hits and three walks in 2 1/3.  Equally ineffective was Pat Darcy.  In the same number of innings, he gave up five runs on six hits and two walks. 

Bill Plummer, Pete Rose and Tony Perez all homered for the Reds.  Rose had two hits, two runs and two RBIs while Plummer went three for four with two runs and two RBIs.
