Chicago's first place record in the NI Fast climbed to 32-18.
The Cubs are actually tied with the Dodgers in the loss column,
but have four fewer victories.
Manny Trillo, the leading hitter in the league, triggered the
Chicago attack with three hits and three RBIs. Dave Rosello added
two hits and three more RBs, as the Cubs scored all their runs
in the first four innings, chasing starter and loser Tommy John. ,
Chicago starter Ray Burris scattered nine Los Angeles hits in
his eight innings of work, and allowed the Dodgers to plate three
men in the seventh. Stev2 Garvey's ninth home run highlighted
the Los Angeles rally.
Paul Reuschel and Bruce Sutter combined to save the victory
for Burris, whose season record rose to 8-5. Burris had aided his
own cause in the fourth when he stroked a two-run single.
