Other baseball was being played THE CANADIAN PRESS Lost in the hoopla of Hank Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run Monday night was the fact that Atlanta Braves took advantage of six Los Angeles miscues to win 7-4, handing the Dodgers their first National League baseball loss of the season. The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the second, but fell behind 3-1 after the Dodgers batted in the third. Aaron's two-run blast tied the score in the fourth and the Braves added the winner before the inning ended. The six Los Angeles errors were the deciding factor as the Braves managed only four .hits off three Dodger pitchers. Starter Al Downing, who sur- rendered Aaron's historic home run, was tagged with the loss. Ron Reed got the victory but needed relief help in the seventh inning from Buzz Capra. In the only other NL game, the unbeaten San Francisco Giants won their fourth game, edging Cincinnati Reds 4-3 as Garry Maddox drove in all four runs. New York Yankees also re- mained undefeated, downing Cleveland Indians 5-3 in the only American League game for their third victory. Maddox extended his hitting streak to 15 first four this season and the final 11 in singling home the Giants' first run in the opening inning following a walk to Bobby Bonds, an infield out and a balk. Then he cracked a three-run homer off loser Roger Nelson in the fifth after a single by winning pitcher John D'Acquisto and a two-out walk to Chris Speier. The Yankees collected 12 hits to start the season with three consecutive victories for the first time since 1959. The Yanks broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning on a run-scor- ing single by Mike Hegan off losing reliever Tom Hilgendorf. They wrapped it up with two runs in the seventh on run-producing singles by Gene Michael and Jim Mason. last year's four Local swimmers make big splash rm. nnxl A AMnci nAi-r WINNIPEG (CP) This year's World Hockey Associ- ation quarter-final series against Winnipeg Jets couldn't start soon enough for Houston Aeros.
