CHICAGO -- Greg Luzinski (7,8) and the rest of his South-Side Hitmen were not just baning the walls at Comiskey Park, they were bashing the ball over them. In addition to The Bull's taters, Steve Kemp (8) and Ron Leflore (2) also went yard in a 12-3 Sox romp. the beneficiary on the hill was Richard Dotson (3-3). Jim Slaton (0-1) took the loss for Milwaukee, but it was really Dwight Bernard who took the brunt of the beating. Luzinski finished with 4 hits and 4 RBI. "Wimpy" Tom Paciorek chipped in 3. Meanwhile, 18-year old Bruce Thomas was oblivious as he celebrated his high school graduation with friends.

CHICAGO -- Robin Yount's (7) double, home run, 4 hits and 4 RBI, ensured that this one was over before the halfway point. Randy Lerch (2-4) was magnificent for 8 IP before surrendering to fatigue in the 9th.
