First place Cincinnati swept away seventh place Brooklyn 3-2. Mike Hamlin (6-3) got the win over John Ramsey (6-4) ''Dirty Dave" Nastu closed it out in the ninth for his 6th save of the season.

The Red Devils scored three runs on six hits. The big runs were Cliff Zimmerman's 2nd inning double, Jay Tucker's 8th homerun coming in the 4th inning with no one on base, and David Spenser's RBI single in the 8th inning.


Phils 3 Atlanta 2

Second place Atlanta and 4th place Philadelphia played the rubber game of their three game series and the Phillies, desperate for a series win came out on top 3-2.

Philadelphia scored first in the top of the 2nd inning. Atlanta starter Micah Reniff allowed a double to Bob Erickson to start the inning, then put Edgar Enright in via a bases on balls. Reniff made a good play to throw out Brian Martinez at first on a smash off his hip for the first out. The runners advanced to second and third. Erickson scored the game's initial run on a grounder to third base by Karl Kapler. Enright was left on base when Charlie Carrasco flied out to right fielder Terry Haughey.

1-0 Philadelphia.

Philadelphia starting pitcher Shep Kroner had a tough 5th inning when Atlanta scored both of its runs sending eight batters to the plate. It began with a lead off single by Ismael Hamlin, who was forced at second base for the first out by Haughey. Kroner issued his only walk of the game to Ian Judge. Rick Holbrook singled to center field driving in Haughery from second to tie the game 1-1. Kroner struck out Evan Davis swinging. Shortstop Bill Springer's two out boot of a ground ball hit by pitcher Micah Reniff cost the Phillies an unearned run and put Atlanta ahead 2-1.

Roger Hall hit a deep drive over the left field fence off Reniff in the 7th inning quickly tied the game 2-2.

Philadelphia took control of the game in the 7th.

Tony Curtis hit his second double of the game to set up the big game winning scoring rally. Atlanta made a pitching change; Lefthander Pete Jaeger replaced Reniff (LP 4-3 6IP 8H 3R/3ER 4BB/7SO). Springer and Erickson both flied out. But with two outs Jaeger made a critical mistake to Edgar Enright with two strikes and the first baseman doubled past diving right fielder Haughey and Curtis never hesitated scoring the game winning run.

Orlando Nokes did have to take care of one more inning retiring all three batters he faced for his 11th save of the season.

Montreal edged San Diego 6-5 and Milwaukee doubled up Pittsburgh 6-3.
