WEB GEMS- Bot 5th: Johnny Bench blocked the plate, saving a run!
 
In a close game it was the Detroit Reds 8, the Kansas City Expos 6 in 11
innings at Olympic Stadium.
 
The score was tied at 6 after nine.  Detroit was victorious in the 11th
inning.  After an out was recorded, George Foster began the Detroit spurt
when he slapped a single.  Dan Driessen got his chance to keep things going,
but he went down on strikes.  Johnny Bench then doubled.  Ron Leflore
followed and he was walked intentionally to load the bases.  Dave Concepcion
stepped into the box and stroked a one-base hit.  Mario Soto was the next
batter, but he struck out.  Detroit had 13 hits for the afternoon.
 
Soto(2-0) went 1 and 1/3 innings allowing no runs for the victory. Don
Stanhouse(0-2) took the loss in relief.  He allowed 2 runs and 3 hits in 1
and 2/3 innings.  
 
Detroit now has a record of 20-13.  Kansas City has a record of 9-20, worst in
the league after the loss.
