  • Description

    Thousands of eager baseball fans filled the stadium in Chicago on Friday (13 June) to watch their home team, the Cubs, play the visiting Cincinnati Reds.

    The Reds went int the game with something of a psychological advantage. They had wan 16 of their last 23 games, whereas the Cubs had gone down 3-4 to a Texan team, the Houston Astros, only two days before.

    With National League leader in homers and runs-battled-in, Johnny Bench,on their side, the Reds looked as though they had nothing to fear... despite the obvious enthusiasm of the Chicago fans.

    Homers by Bench and team-mates George Foster and Keith Rose illustrated the Reds' winning streak...and even big hits by Cubs' stars Manny Trio and Jerry Morales could do nothing to alter the fact the Reds showed themselves the superior team.. and the eventual victors.
