I will always remember this game. It was the day of my 21st bday and we watched the game on our porch at OSU. Guillen had a moster game that Day I believe. He hit the game winning HR but he also had an outfield assist or two. For some reason I remember him driving in the run to force extras but I may be wrong.

Didn't Bench twice hit three HR's off of Carlton in his career? Maybe I'm remembering wrong but it seems like he did.
Also I noticed in the boxscore that Bill Plummer came into the game and played 3rd base. I don't remember him playing there at all. I looked up his stats on retrosheet and he played in a few games at third but very few.

July 26, 1970 - Johnny Bench of the Cincinnati Reds hit three straight homers off Steve Carlton of the St. Louis Cardinals. On the same day, Orlando Cepeda of the Atlanta Braves connected for three consecutive homers in an 8-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
