Braves Sweep Reds!


Game 1,

Marty Martinez singled in Bob Johnson and that was the only scoring as both team's bats were silenced by fantastic pitching.  Ron Reed improves to 9-8 with a complete game shutout. Reed allowed only 3 measly hits. The hard luck loser was Gary Nolan. Braves 1....Reds 0.

Game 2,
Pat Jarvis strikes out 13 Red batters.

In the night cap it was another nail biter. Cincy took an early 2-0 lead on Pete Rose's 13th dinger of the year.  Atlanta came back with a run in the fourth inning and two more in the fifth.  Felix Millan gathered 3 hits to lead the Brave attack.  Pat Jarvis went the distance striking out 13 members of the Big Red Machine lineup.  George Culver falls to 10-7. Braves 3...Reds 2.

Game 3,

Alou's late hit drives in winning tally.
Tony Cloninger and Phil Niekro were tossing zeros for most of the game. When Cloninger began to tire, Ted Abernathy came in to relieve. However, Abernathy did not have the same mojo as his teammate and coughed up the winning tally in the bottom of the ninth inning.  Lum led of the 9th with a hit and back to back walks loaded the bases with Felipe Alou coming to the plate.  Alou grounded a sharp ground ball between Leo Cardenas and Tony Perez that brought around Lum to end the game and give the 3 game sweep to the Braves. Phil Niekro evens his record at 10-10 and Ted Abenathy gets the loss to fall to 7-2. Braves 1.....Reds 0.
