Billy Williams hit a double and single to spark the scoring by the Cubs in a 5-2 victory over the Dodgers. Bill Hands gave up the Dodgers' tallies in the third, one on a homer by Willie Crawford. Williams doubled in the fourth, Ron Santo walked and the tying runs followed on singles by Randy Hundley and Johnny Callison. With two out in the fifth, Williams singled and the Cubs went on to score twice on singles by Jim Hickman, Santo and Hundley. A sacrifice fly by Glenn Beckert with the bases loaded in the sixth accounted for the final tally. [The Sporting News]
