Buoyed by becoming a father for the first, Chicago Cubs catcher Randy Hundley has a big day in Candlestick Park, collecting three hits in five at-bats, with a double and a grand slam. Hundley’s five RBI help the Cubs defeat the San Francisco Giants 9-8, maintaining their strong start. The Cubs, who had not won a pennant in 20 years, were comfortably in first place at 30-16.
