The St. Louis Cardinals extended their lead in the National League to three game with a series victory in San Francisco. The Cardinals took the rubber game of the series with a 4-1 victory over the Giants. Dick Hughes won his 13th game in 20 decisions with a six-hitter. Gaylord Perry (13-11) took the loss for the Giants. Lou Brock hit his 17th home run of the season, a two-run clout in the ninth inning that broke open what had been an eight inning pitching duel.
