Game 3 with the Padres up 2-0 features starters Dennis Eckersley (20-8 2.99 Grade 14) for the Red Sox and Bob Owchinko (10-13 3.56 Grade 9) for the Padres.
The Red Sox would score first in this game as they get a 2 run homer from Butch Hobson in the 2nd inning. They would add a run in the 3rd thanks to a 2 out RBI from Carl Yastrzemski. Eckersley would help himself with a sac fly RBI in the 4th to make it a 4-0 lead for the Red Sox. This was more than enough as Eckersley would scatter 7 hits and throw a complete game shut out and get the Red Sox their first win of the series.
Final Score: Red Sox 4, Padres 0
WP: Dennis Eckersley (2-1)
