THE BRAVES drew the seven suc-
cessive walks after two were out in the
third inning, scoring four runs without a
hit. The walks tied the major league
mark set in 1909 when the Chicago
White Sox received seven in a game
against the Washington Senators. The
old National League mark of six was
accomplished five times, the last when
Brooklyn pitchers did it against the
New York Giants in 1944.
Jim Bibby, 1-5, started the walking
string when he issued two-out passes to
Dale Murphy, Bob Horner, Bob Watson
and Glenn Hubbard.

Giants 7, Mets 6
NEW YORK (AP) - Johnnie
LeMaster's three-run homer in the
fourth inning carried the San Francisco
Giants to a 7-7 victory over the New
York Mets yesterday afternoon.
The game saw Giant relief pitcher
Jim Barr and Manager Frank Robinson
engage in an angry confrontation on the
mound in the seventh inning.
With the Mets threatening with men
on first and second with two out, Robin-
son started towards the mound to
replace Barr, who had a 1-0 count on
Brian Giles. Instead of waiting for the
manager to reach the mound, Barr
walked toward the dugout and flipped
the ball to Robinson, who promptly
grabbed the pitcher by the arm and
spun him back to the mound.
A bested exchange followed while

from the bullpen. Dave Kingman's
three-run homer, his ninth of the
season, sparked a four-run first inning
after the Giants had taken a 2-0 lead to
start the game.
St. Louis 7, Cincinnati 2
CINCINATTI (AP) - Ken Oberkfell
collected three hits and John Stuper
survived early wildness to pitch the St.
Louis Cardinals to a 7-2 victory over the
Cincinnati Reds yesterday afternoon.
Stuper, 5-2, had control problems in
the first two innings, when he walked
five batters. He settled down to give up
only five hits while issuing one more
walk to register hits second complete
game of the season.
The Reds scored in the first when
Gary Redus walked, stole second and
took third on catcher Darrell Porter's
errant throw. Eddie Milner then
walked, and Dave Concepcion groun-
ded into a run-producing double play.
Los Angeles 6, Phillies 1
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Burt
Hooton and Dave Stewart limited
Philadelphia to six hits, including Gary
Matthews' homer that halted the
Phillies' scoreless streak at 42 2/3 in-
nings, and Pedro Guerrero drove in
three runs that led the Los Angeles
Dodgers to a 6-1 victory last night.
Matthews' fourth home run of the
season, a two-out shot in the bottom of
the eighth inning, brought the crowd of
22,735 to its feet with a thunderous
ovation - but it didn't keep the Phillies
from losing their fifth ina row.
Hooton, 3-2, allowed five hits in six
innings before Stewart took over and
picked up his fifth save. The Dodgers'
pitchers had put together three con-
secutive complete-game shutouts
before Wednesday night's game. Their
scoreless-inning streak was halted at
