By TIII2 ASSOCIATED PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates scuttled Atlanta Braves 111-6 Wednesday night and their li) runs made a total of 65 for Ihe four-game cries at hit-happy Atlanta Stad- ium. There were also 107 base hits as the Pirates won three of four. "It was quite a series we had said Willie Stargell of the Pirates, who hil his 42nd home run Wednesday nighl and drove in his lllth run, both tops in the majors. Milt May, who was married a few hours before game lime, aid: "Not only did I get mar- ried, but I gol three hils and batted in three runs. Wow." Clemenlc was also giddy after collecting five hits and scoring three runs. In the oilier National League contests, New York Mels topped San Francisco Giants r-J; Cincinnati Reds trimmed Chicago Cubs 9-4; San Diego Padres turned back Philadel- phia Phillies 7-0, Los Angeles Dodgers topped Montreal Expos 4-1 and St. Louis Cardinals de- feated Houston Astros 4-1. The Pirates blasted off the prec with a 4-3, 15-4 twi-night doubleheader sweep Monday and Atlanta uncorked a 15-5 knockout punch Tuesday night. SCORE G IN rlRST The Pirates settled matters righl away Wednesday with a ix-run first inning and three more in the second, two on Star- gell's homer and the other on Bob Robertson's 26lh home run. Hank Aaron ripped his 38th homer and 630th lifetime blast for Atlanta. It was his second in two nights. Jerry Koosman won his first game in two months as he pitched a three-hitter to lead New York over San Francisco, whose lead in the National League West was cut to games. Tom Haller drove in three runs with a homer and sacrifice fly while Doyle Alexander and Jim Brewer combined for a sev- en-hitler in Los Angeles' vic- tory. Meanwhile Frank Robinson, one of baseball's premier slug- gers, had not hit a sacrifice bunt since 1957 and the way Wilbur Wood's knuckler was flitting around, he didn't think he would try again for another 14 years But Robinson, who fouled his first bunt attempt against Wood Wednesday niglit, tried again much sooner than he expected and neatly executed the sacri- fice, paving the way for Balti- more Orioles' 6-3 victory over Chicago White Sox. The rare sacrifice came in Ihe sixth inning wilh the score 1-1 and followed walks lo Don Bu- j ford and Paul Blair. After Robinson's sacrifice moved (lie runners to second and third and Merv Rctlenmund struck out, Brooks Robinson was walked intentionally, and Dave Johnson rapped a two-run double and Andy Etchebai-ren delivered a two-run single, pul- ling the Orioles safely ahead 5- 1.
