George Scott blasted 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI and Fergie Jenkins completed the
game without help from the bullpen as the Boston Mets clobbered the
outmatched Atlanta Athletics, 17 to 3.
 
Scott had a good evening at the plate.  He cleared the fences for a two-run
home run in the 6th inning, smashed a solo-shot out of the park in the 7th
inning and slapped a one-base hit in the 8th inning.  Boston bats were very
productive in the 6th inning which saw them score 4 runs on 3 hits and the
8th inning which saw them plate 9 runs on 7 hits.  Boston rapped out 15 hits
for the night.  
 
Jenkins(1-2) got the victory, allowing 3 runs for the game. Vida Blue(1-2)
took the loss.  Boston knocked him around a bit, as he gave up 7 runs in 6
and 1/3 innings.
