Braves take 2 of 3 from Phillies, Niekro notches 12th win.

Game 1: Philadelphia 3 Atlanta 2
W: Christenson (5-3)  L: Solomon (1-2)
Phillies ran their way to victory with 4 stolen bases.

Game 2: Atlanta 3 Philadelphia 1
W: Ruthven (2-6)  L: Kaat (5-3)
A two run home run by Gary Matthews in the 6th was the difference in the game.

Game 3: Atlanta 7 Philadelphia 2
W: Niekro (12-1)  L: Carlton (8-3)
The much anticipated duel between two of the NL's top hurlers never materialized.  Atlanta went deep 3 times off of Carlton and Niekro breezed to his league leading 12th win.
