GALE TRANSCRIPT: "When these two teams meet you get to see just about everything there is to see in the game of baseball.
Home runs of course like this one by Dave Conception.....superb fielding plays in the clutch when they count, like this one by Dodger's short stop, Rick (indistinct)...and of course a lot of base hits keeps partisan fans on either side on their toes.
That's why the two teams drew an average of some thirty five thousand spectators at each of their last four games, and contrasts to the 900 or so that went to see a Giants game in San Francisco this week.
When two teams are as evenly matched as the Reds and the Dodgers, it is of course the team that gets the breaks that wins. That's what did it for the Dodgers in the last game of their series. A hot ground smash that got through Tony Harris' glove at first base and gave the Dodgers the winning run in the 11th inning.
This is Kenneth Gale in Los Angeles."
