Third baseman Wayne Gross blasted 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI and Phil Niekro
tossed a complete game at Wrigley Field where the Atlanta Athletics beat the
California Cubs 9 to 1.
 
Gross enjoyed a fine day at the plate.  He lifted one out of the park for a
two run home run in the 3rd inning and cracked a two-run shot in the 5th
inning.  Atlanta rapped out 10 hits for the afternoon.  
 
Niekro(5-5) allowed 1 run on the game. Paul Hartzell(3-6) was tagged with the
loss.  He was knocked around pretty good, giving up 5 runs in 3 innings.
