Braves sweep home series vs Mets

Game 1:
Atlanta 4  NY Mets 2
WP - P Niekro (4-6)  LP - Gentry (5-3)
HR: NY - Agee (7), Boswell (3)  
       ATL - Gonzalez (2), Aaron (15), Carty (7)

The Braves edged the Mets in a game that featured 5
homers, all solo shots that accounted for all but one of
the runs.  Phil Niekro picked up his 4th win on the
season with a complete game, striking out 6 Mets.
Gary Gentry also pitched the whole game with 6
strikeouts, but he was victimized by the long ball and
took the loss.

Game 2:
Atlanta 5  NY Mets 3
WP - Jarvis (8-2)  LP - Seaver (7-5)  
S - Wilhelm (6)
HR: NY - None  ATL - Aaron (16)

Pat Jarvis picked up his NL leading 8th win on the year,
beating Tom Seaver and the Mets. The Mets jumped out
to an early 2-0 lead in the first, but Jarvis settled down
after that, pitching 8 innings before giving way to Hoyt
Wilhelm who finished the game off for his 6th save.
Hammerin' Hank Aaron's 3-run homer in the 5th put the
Braves out in front for good.  Aaron is now up to 16
home runs on the season.
