But Seaver, enjoying a splendid season despite a constant run famine, pitched a four-hitter to beat the Pirates. 3 -0, in the opener and the Mets made it a sweep when they scored a 5-2 victory in the second game with the help of two homers by John Milner. As a result, the Pirates are once again under .300 and sit games out of first place. St. Louis defeated Montreal, 9-3 and 2-0, Philadelphia edged Chicago, 2-0, Houston beat Los Angeles, 5-0, Atlanta outslugged Cincinnati, 14-6, and San Diego topped San Francisco, 6-5, in other National League games.
