WEB GEMS- Bot 1st: Cesar Cedeno robbed Roger Freed of a Homerun!
 
Catcher Ted Simmons homered and had 2 RBI as the St. Louis Twins outscored the
Houston White Sox 4 to 2.
 
St. Louis tallied 2 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning.  St. Louis had 9
hits overall, while Houston had 6.  The winning pitcher was Bob Forsch(5-6)
who allowed 2 runs in 7 innings. Forsch got help from Rawly Eastwick who was
credited with his 2nd save.  J.R. Richard(8-11) was charged with the loss.
 
'He gutted it out' Paul Long said of Forsch.  'I was very impressed by his
tenacity.'
