NL East leaders lose

From wire Service Reports
It appeared as if nobody
wanted to take the initiative in
the National League East race
lasf night, as the four top
teams in the division all lost.
The Chicago Cubs, who
rammed home 16 runs Thurs-
day night couldn't even
come up with one last night,
falling to Joe Niekro and the
Houston Astros, 1-0. Niekro
fired a four hitter while los-
ing pitcher Bill Bonham al-
lowed but three, but back to
back Astro doubles proved

costly to the Cubs, who still
retained a two-game lead
over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Bucs had their eight
game winning streak snappec
by Atlanta, as Phil Niekrt
scattered eight hits to comple
ment his brother's win with s
5-3 victory of his own. Also los^
ing was Philadelphia, who war
shut out by San Francisco's
Jim Barr, and the fourth-place
Cardinals, who lost the first of
a twi-night doubleheader tc
