Marshall really lit it up for Los Angeles. The Atlanta fans let him have it for what he did to their boys. He smashed a two-run homer in the 3rd inning, delivered a base-hit which brought home a run in the 7th inning and cracked a two-run shot in the 9th inning. Los Angeles provided plenty of action in the 3rd inning which saw them score 5 runs on 5 hits and the 9th inning with 7 runs on 7 hits. Los Angeles dominated offensively as they scored in 6 different innings.
The victory went to Jerry Reuss(7-3) who went 8 innings, allowing 3 runs. The losing pitcher was Rick Mahler(5-5). He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 8 hits and 3 walks in 3 innings.
