Round 1: Jints Sweep Dodgers

GAME 1 - Candlestick Park
Singer vs Marichal
Giants 6, Dodgers 1
"Dandy !"
Bill Singer and the Dodger team as a whole were totally outclassed by the Domenican Dandy, Juan Marichal and the home run bats of Willie Mays and Jim Ray Hart.  LA was only able to muster up 1 unearned run off the Dandy, who went the distance fanning 7 and allowing just 5 hits.
Giants lead series 1-0


Drysdale vs Perry
Giants 6, Dodgers 5
"Bonds Bails Jints Out"

This much hyped matchup of future HOF hurlers never lived up to expectations.  Perry, who was spotted a 3 run lead crumbled early and was gone after 5 after allowing 5 runs on 12 hits.  Drysdale was shaky during the early going, but righted his ship to the point where he left the game leading 5-4.  Mudcat Grant pitched a scoreless 8th to protect Big D's lead.  Closer Jim Brewer came on to start the 9th for LA.  Pinch hitter Jack Hiatt led off the inning with a walk, then was forced at second on a fielder's choice off the bat of Jim Davenport.  An 0-1 offering by Brewer caught too much of the plate and Bobby Bonds launched it into the stratosphere for a game winning homer.  Kudos to reliever Bobby Bolin who threw 3 scoreless innings in relief of Perry.  Mike McCormick got the win with a scoreless top of the 9th
Giants lead series 2-0

GAME 3 - Dodger Stadium
Sadecki vs Sutton
Giants 7, Dodgers 3
Ray Sadecki, who has been nothing short of disappointing since arriving 2 years ago in exchange for Orlando Cepeda, had a great day on the hil giving up just 2 runs in 8 1/3 innings.  Frank Linzy got the final 2 outs in sloppy fashion, but that didn't matter because Jim Ray Hart knocked in 3 runs with his 3rd homer of the series.  Mays knocked in 2 runs.  Cater Dick Dietz and left fielder Jesus Alou each had two doubles as the Giants victimized Don Sutton for 7 runs on 9 hits in 6 innings.  Lost in the shuffle was Rocky Colavito's 2 run blast for LA in the bottom of the first that gave the Dodgers a short lived lead, as well as John Purdin's perfect 3 innings of relief.  San Fran thoroughly outclassed their rivals to the south to gain the series sweep.
Giants win series 3-0
