September 30, 1969, San Francisco: Giants 6, Padres 1 (box score)

The Giants scored three in the first off Al Santorini. With runners at second and third, and two out, Bobby Bonds singled to left, driving home Tito Fuentes and Ron Hunt. Left fielder Jim Williams and Santorini both made errors on the play, allowing Bonds to scamper home as well.

San Diego threatened to cut the lead the next inning. Van Kelly led off with a single and Ivan Murrell doubled him to third. Gaylord Perry came back to strike out the side, keeping the Padres off the board.

In the fifth, with the score now 4-0, San Diego again had a chance to do some damage. Kelly knocked a bases-loaded single to ruin Perry’s shutout, but Murrell struck out to end the frame with the Padres still down by three runs.

The Giants scored two more in the seventh off reliever Frank Reberger to make the final 6-1. Perry went the distance, striking out 14 Padres en route his 19th win of the season.
