July 2, 1976: McGlothen Fans 9 As The Cardinals Rollover The Expos At Busch

On July 2, 1976, Lynn McGlothen struck out 9 and picked up a complete game victory for the Cardinals as they rolled passed the Expos 3-0. The Cardinals hurler was coming off a rough stretch as he had lost four of his last five before he pitched the gem at Busch, and a gem it was.  After giving up a single to Tim Foli in the first then another single to Larry Parrish in the 2nd, McGlothen didn't give up another hit until the eighth, he was locked in. With the game on line in the ninth McGlothen gave up a couple one out singles before nailing down the victory. The win ended a four game losing streak for the Redbirds.
