Then the Phillies unlimbercd their muscles and, battering three Cincinnati hurlers for 16 ripped up the Reds 9-4, provid- ing Carlton with his 15th con- secutive victory. Elsewhere in the Nationa League, New York Mets edged Atlanta Braves 2-1, Houston As tros destroyed Montreal Expos 17-5, Chicago Cubs nipped San Francisco Giants 2-1, San Diego Padres clipped St. Louis Cardi nals 3-2 and Los Angeles Dodg ers whipped Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2.
