ATLANTA-Hank Aaron belted
his 648th career home run, mov-
ing him into a second place tie
on the all-time list, as the At-
lanta Braves whipped the San
Diego Padres 54 last night.
Aaron's blast, his ninth this
season, moved him into a tie
with Willie Mays, the former San
Francisco Giant great who this
year was traded to the New
York Mets. The two modern day
superstars are the only players
with more than 600 homers
other than Babe Ruth, whose
714 mark stands as one of the
game's most revered records.
Aaron smacked a 3-2 pitch off
southpaw Fred Norman, 4-3,
that curled around the left field
foul pole and landed in the seats,
a solo blow in the first inning.
It also lifted his lifetime total
bases to 6,001.
The Braves added another run
in the first when Rico Carty sin-
gled and later scored on Earl
Williams' single to center.

a 1-0 victory over the Chicago
Cubs yesterday.
Gibson, 2-5, won his second
successive decision by shading
Chicago's Ferguson Jenkins, who
yielded eight. scattered hits,
three by Matty Alou. Jenkins,

registering his ninth straight
complete game, is now 5-5.
After Don Kessinger's leadoff
single in the fourth, Gibson held
the Cubs hitless until Gene
Hiser's one-out single in the
eighth. Jim Hickman singled in
the ninth.
The Cards scored intthe fifth

gle, was sacrificed by Gibson.

Alou, hitting in his 13th
straight game, doubled, singled
and tripled in his first three
trips. His sixth-inning leadoff

Dodgers surge
Mota lashed a tie-breaking
triple in the 10th inning, lifting
the Los Angeles Dodgers to a
5-4 victory over the San Fran-
cisco Giants yesterday.
Mota's hit off losing reliever
Don McMahon, 0-2, scored Wil-
lie Davis, who had led off the
10th with a walk. Mota then
was trapped off third, with Wes
Parker at bat. Parker followed
with an infield single.
Reliever Jim Brewer, 4-2, was
the winner; blanking the Giants
over the last two innings.

came with the Reds trailing 3-2
and highlighted a six-run third
inning for Cincinnati.

Lou Piniella tried to score from
first on Ed Kirkpatrick's loop-
ing single to right and was cut
down at home on Danny Thon.p-
son's relay to Phil Roof.

ARLINGTON - The Oakland
A's erupted for three runs in the
sixth inning last night to defeat
Texas 5-1 and give Jim Hunter
his fifth victory.
Texas' Dick Bosman was lock-
ed in a 1-1 pitching duel with
Hunter when the A's teed off on
the righthander in the sixth.
Bert Campaneris opened the
inning with a double down the
third base line. Joe Rudi bunted
for a single, moving Campaneris
to third. Bosman walked Reg-
gie Jackson and Sal Bando fol-
lowed with a sacrifice fly, scor-
ing Campaneris.
Mike Epstein singled to right,
scoring Rudi. Then Ollie Brown
followed with a single to drive
Jackson across. Jim Panther
came on to get out the side
without further damage.
