Geronimo batted sixth 18 times in 1973. I like Bench in the #3 spot, but I would have preferred Perez batting fourth. Maybe Doggie was "splitting up the lefties"! :D

It worked for Bench that day to hit third. He had four RBI's. Rose had the other three.

I just have very few memories of Bench batting third. Morgan wasn't in the lineup that day so I guess that kinda explains it but the real puzzler to me was Tolan batting cleanup. Then again like mentioned earlier maybe Sparky wanted a lefty like Tolan in between the right handed sticks.
