Phillies Survive Opening Day Blowout to Take Series from Cub

Cubs 12, Philadelphia 1

W: Jenkins (1-0)
L: Short (0-1)

Fergie Jenkins goes nine and Ks nine, Santo and Hundley go deep, and the Cubs win in an easy win. The Phillies' aging lefthander Chris Short is bombed and looks to be near the end of a long career.

Philadelphia 4, Cubs 3

W: Wise (1-0)
L: Hands (0-1)

Normally light hitting catcher Mike Ryan drives in two, scores two, and wallops a triple as the Phils get to Cubs starter Bill Hands early to take a 4-0 lead. The Cubs come back in the ninth vs. Phillies starter Rick Wise but fall a run short.

Philadelphia 12, Cubs 3

W: Fryman (1-0)
L: Holtzman (0-1)

The Cubs' Kenny Holtzman is rocked for nine runs in seven innings, while groundball inducing Phillies starter Woodie Fryman keeps the Cubs off the scoreboard. Two homers and five ribbies from Phils great Dick Allen key the offense, which gets help from homers from Larry Hisle and pinch hitter Rick Joseph.
