    Bench is batting third, Tolan is batting cleanup and Geronimo is batting sixth.

    I would be interested to know what George Lee Anderson was thinking when he made the lineup out on this day.

    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"!

    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.
