Marichal blanks Mets

New York’s recent dominance against the California trio of NL West teams came to screeching halt as Juan Marichal and the Giants blanked the Metsies, 5-0. The Giants jumped on the Mets early, scoring four runs in the 1st off Met starter Gary Gentry. Willie McCovey singled in a run and Bobby Bonds followed with a 3-run circuit blast-giving San Francisco a lead they never relinquished.

Chicacgo stopped their losing skid, edging Atlanta, 2-1. New York fell to 4  back of the Cubs in the NL East.
