Game 2 – 1978 Tournament Replay Padres vs Dodgers

Game 2 features lefty Randy Jones (13-14 2.88 Grade 14) opposite right Burt Hooton (19-10 2.71 Grade 15).

Another game, another top flight pitching match up. Jones and Hooton would be in control until the Padres would get 2 in the 4th. RBI double by Gene Richards and RBI single by Oscar Gamble account for the runs. This would be more than Jones would need as he would go the distance only allowing 3 hits. The Padres have come into Chavez Ravine and took the first two games while holding the Dodgers scoreless. Padres win 2-0 and take a 2-0 lead in the series as it shifts to San Diego Stadium.

Final Score: Padres 2, Dodgers 0

WP: Randy Jones (2-0)
