Mark Fidrych went the distance and George Foster touched them all and had 5
RBI as the Detroit Reds defeated the California Cubs by the score of 12 to 5
at Wrigley Field.
 
Foster enjoyed a fine day at the plate.  He ripped a one-base hit in the 1st
inning, smacked a three-run homer in the 5th inning and laced a base-hit
which was good for two runs in the 7th inning.  Detroit bats were hot in the
7th inning when they had 5 runs on 7 hits.  Offensively, Detroit was a
juggernaut.  They scored in 6 separate innings.  
 
The winning pitcher was Fidrych(2-0) who allowed 5 runs for the game. The
losing pitcher was Rick Reuschel(1-1).  He served up 4 homeruns in his 6 and
1/3 innings.
