ArWflMt TMMS, fat., A|N* 1), Cards Down Mets To End Losing Streak .».¥ THE ASSOCIATED I'KESS A good trade, it has been said, s one which helps both teams. .In Friday, at least, the Orlando Jepeda-Joe Torre trade was a ,-ery good one for the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardi- iM», Ccpeda and Torre both ham- ncred home runs, leading Atlanta and St. Louis to victories, i'hc Braves tagged Cincinnati i 4 and the Cardinals won their 'irst a f t e r three losses, nipping \'ew York 6-5. In other National League ionics Friday. Chicago shut out Montreal 1-0 in 12 innings. Pittsburgh dropped Philadelphia 7-1, I .us Angeles battered Houston 1 : ; and San Francisco blanked San Diego 8 0 . Huth sides in the Ccpeda- Torre training camp swap looked good after the two sluggers unloaded on the Reds and Mets. Ccpeda's Icaaoff homer in the eighth inning snapped a 4-4 tie and gave the unbeaten Braves their fourth straight victory. Atlanta added an insurance run and then Cecil Upshaw came out of the bullpen to nail down the final out in Ron Reed's victory. The homer was Cepeda's only hit of the game and it was the only one the Braves needed. Torre had an even better time against the Mets. Shackled by a l-for-14 slump as the Cardinals dropped their first three starts, Torre jumped out of it with a single, double and homer. His double started a .wo-run rally in the third against Jerry Koosman and hen he tagged a 400-foot homer n the seventh. The Mets were so snook up by Torre that they gave him an intentional walk in the ninth following Vada Pinson's two-out double. Mike Shannon followed with a two-run double that gave the Cards enough of a cushion to stand off Cleon Jones' two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Torre was the subject of winter-long trade speculation, with most of the rumors sending him to New York, his home town. But the Mets backed out at the last moment and the Braves sent him to St. Louis for Ccpeda instead. It was a move neither club regretted Friday. The Cubs won their fourth straight when Billy Williams' 12th-inning single drove in Don Kessinger with the only run of the game against Montreal. Chicago's Joe Niekro and Carl Morton of the Expos had battled through the first nine scoreless innings before each left for a pinch hitter. Pittsburgh's Bob Moose fired a five-hitter and the Pirates won their fourth in a row, beating the Phillies. Jerry May had his second home run of the season for Pittsburgh. Rookie Ted S i z e m o r e smacked three hits, including a bases-loaded triple, and drove in four runs, leading Los Angeles past Houston. Sizemore's triple broke « 2-2 tie in the Firth mnlnc and then the shortstoi Ntole home for another run. Bill Russell, another rookie, hom- ered for the Dodgers. Willie Mays tagged his first home run of the season and the 588th of his career and Ray Sadecki threw a six-hitter as San Francisco halted its three-game losing streak with an 8-0 victory over San Diego. It was the first loss for the Padres, who committed five errors. *··***· New Record In The Making Gary Hall, 17, of Garden Grove.
