Chicago fell behind quickly as the St. Louis offense came through in the first inning when they scored 2 runs on 2 hits. That early scoring was all that Tudor(15-5) needed. St. Louis banged out 11 hits on the night.
Rick Sutcliffe(13-7) was charged with the loss. He gave up 9 hits and 1 walk in 6 and 1/3 innings. Jim Frey lamented, 'Tudor was really aggressive tonight. He kept coming after our hitters. Heck, why not. he kept sitting our guys down one after another.'
