Hot Cincy
wins twice
By The Associated Press
CINCINNATI - Cincinnati's
streaking Reds used tight pitch-
ing by Ross Grimsley and Pedro
Borbon to top Philadelphia 4-2
last night, completing a sweep
of the twi-night doubleheader
against the Phillies.
Denis Menke drove in three
runs with a single and triple in
the opener as the Reds won that
game 8-4. The sweep gave Cin-
cinnati six straight victories and
13 in the last 14 games.
Grimsley fanned eight batters
in 72/3 innings of the nightcap
before yielding successive home
runs to Greg Luzinski and Roger
Freed in the eighth. He was re-
placed by Borbon, who was
credited with a save.
George Foster staked Grims-
ley to a 1-0 lead in the second
with a solo homer, his second.
The Reds made it 2-0 in the
fourth on a single by Joe Mor-
gan, his 23rd stolen base of the
year and Bobby Tolan's double.
A two-run triple by Tony Perez
in the sixth following walks to
Morgan and Johnny Bench ex-
tended Cincinnati's lead to 4-0.
Bench slugged his 16th homer
of the year in the opener as the
Reds wiped out an early 3-0
Philadelphia lead.
The score was 4-4 in the sev-
enth when Joe Hague ripped
his second double of the game
and Menke followed with a
triple, driving in the lead run
for the Reds. Dave Concepion's
sacrifice fly scored Menke and
the Reds added two more wrap-
up runs in the eighth.

tory over the Chicago Cubs yes-
Clay Kirby, 4-6, left in the
eighth inning after scattering
seven hits and allowing only the
second earned run in his last
301/ innings.
The Padres, who won at Wrig-
ley Field for the first time since
Aug. 18, 1970, got a quick start
off Milt Pappas in the first on
Jerry Moralez' single and Lee's
sixth homer. Lee also singled in
a run in the seventh.
Pappas, recently troubled by a
sore right pitching elbow, also
was slammed for a run-produc-
ing double by Lee following Der-
rel Thomas' scratchdsingle and a
sacrifice in the third inning.

HOUSTON - Montreal's Mike
Torrez pitched a sparkling thre-
itter and Miek Jorgensen con-
tributed a two-run home run to
give the Expos a 5-1 victory over
Houston last night.
Torrez, off to a good start
after a disappointing 1972 sea-
son, did not allow a hit until
Jimmy Wynn poked a broken
bat single to shallow' left-center
in the sixth inning.
After two were out in the
eighth, Wynn cracked his eighth
homer of the season over the left
field fence for the second hit.
