WEB GEMS- Top 4th: Rick Miller robbed Oscar Gamble of a Homerun!
 
Joe Niekro threw a complete game shutout and Bob Watson smashed 2 homeruns as
the Houston White Sox outscored the Boston Mets 7 to 0.
 
Watson provided much of the offense.  He ripped a solo home run in the 3rd
inning, hit a bases-empty home run in the 5th inning and stroked a one-base
hit in the 7th inning.  Houston managed 10 hits in their victory.
 
Niekro(5-6) was credited with the shutout, his first of the year. Nino
Espinosa(1-7) suffered the loss.  He served up 3 gopher balls in 5 innings.
