Starters come out hot as the game is scoreless through 3 innings. The Reds would break the scoreless tie in the 4th with a 2 run homer by Cesar Geronimo. They would get 2 more runs in the 6th as Johnny Bench lines a 2 run homer to left-center.
With the score 4-0 the Brewers finally got on the board with a solo shot by Larry Hisle. That would be all Seaver would give up as he would go the distance as the Reds win the game and even the series.
Final Score: Reds 4, Brewers 1
WP: Tom Seaver (2-0)
LP: Jerry Augustine (1-1)
