Show walked the leadoff batter four times and his only 1-2-3 inning was the Fifth Inning. With all of that, the Padres were only down 3-0 when Tim Flannery pinch hit for him leading off the bottom of the Eighth Inning. Flannery singled but he was stranded at first base. Rich Gossage relieved Show, struck out Rhoden and then promptly surrendered three singles and a walk before giving up the Grand Slam to Tony Pena.
I just wrote this post and it struck me again just how much happened in this game.
I played it a few days ago and all that I remembered was the Grand Slam and the 8-0 drubbing.
Show, though roughed up, pitched totally tough to only surrender three runs. Gossage - that happens...

The lines for each starting pitcher is odd considering the final score of the game.
Lea left in the middle of the Fifth Inning with Houston up 4-1 with two runners on base.
Niekro surrendered two homers, solo shots to Raines and Carter, and the rest of his baserunners look to have been spread out enough to not put him under pressure.
