Durham was a thorn in the side of the hometown fans as he enjoyed a fine day at their team's expense. He doubled resulting in a run in the 1st inning, stroked a single in the 3rd inning, slapped a one-base hit in the 6th inning, laced a base-knock which brought home a run in the 7th inning and lost the ball over the fence for three runs in the 8th inning. Montreal threatened in the 9th but Chicago was able to put down the rally.
Steve Trout(7-4) got credit for the victory, pitching 5 innings and allowing 3 runs. Ray Fontenot got the save, his 1st. Bill Gullickson(6-5) was hit with the loss.
Buck Rodgers was subdued after the ballgame, 'That one really hurts. If our guys had simply played more fundamentally sound, we could have won that one. That is what really ticks me off!'
