Game 3 - Cardinals 7, Cubs 4

3 run blast
Wrigley Field - 8/4 - Game 3
Curt Simmons vs Bob Buhl
Cardinals 7, Cubs 4

After spotting the Cubs 2 quick runs in the home half of the 1st Simmons found his stride and kept Chicago's lineup at bay.  Buhl, who would be gone after 4 innings was victimized for 5 runs in the top of the 3rd.  Bill White's 2 run single and Ken Boyer's 3 run homer helped the Redbirds rack up more than enough runs.  Curt Flood's RBI triple in the 4th made it 6-2 and the Cards never looked back.  A two run double by Andre Rodgers in the bottom of the 8th gave the Cubbies a slim measure of hope, but Simmons was able to pitch a scoreless 9th to get the complete game victory.
Cardinals win series 3-0
