On September 13, 1970 — At Wrigley Field, the Pirates lead the Cubs, 2 – 1, with two outs and no one on in the 9th when Willie Smith hits a routine fly to Matty Alou. Alou drops it and three singles later the Cubs have a 3 – 2 win. The victory puts the Cubs a game behind the Bucs and a half-game behind the Mets.
