June 24, 1985: Astros (31-37) at Dodgers (41-27)

Bob Welch pitched a 3 hitter and Terry Whitfield had 2 base hits and 2 RBI as the Los Angeles Dodgers topped the Houston Astros by a score of 7 to 1 at DODGER STADIUM. 

Los Angeles started with a bang, jumping out to an early lead in their half of the first as they scored 5 runs on 5 base hits. That early scoring was all that Welch(7-4) needed. Neither team managed to score after the 3rd inning. 

Joe Niekro(2-10) absorbed the loss. He was not very effective, surrendering 6 runs in 2 innings.
