Braves Pick Up 7-0 Sunday Win New Twist Stiffles Cards ST. LOUIS A P . -- Atlanta, raves' hurler Phil Niekro beeves a new twist to his pitoh- g helped him lead his club to five-hit, 7-0 victory over the Louis Cardinals here Sim ay. "I did something different jainst them in that game," aid Niekro, who won his 1 a s t ame June 17 and who had been 7-10 against the Cards in his career. "I threw my knuckleball underhand as well as from the other positions and I believe it helped me," he said. "They have always seemed to get a piece of the ball, hit and run a lot and use their speed against me. "They don't strikeout a lot and they make contact a lot. Whenever they make contact anything can happen. So I added the 'underhand knuckleball delivery and threw my fast ball, which was about 80 per cent of my pitches, from under there too," he said. Niekro's strategy seemed to work as Cardinal hitters scattered their five hits through four innings, and never seriously threatened. British Open Demanding LYTHAM ST.
