That was in the opener when rookie Ken Deal clamped a seven- hitter on Ihe Pels. The Crackers' telling runs came on homers oy Gene Verble and Fred Chapman. St. Claire bopped one out of the park for New Orleans. The score was 3-2. But it was in the nightcap when Bill Kennedy, Atlanta's high-prie- ^•fleft-hander, finally got fired up "tor showing poorly so far this season.
