Willie Mays became the second player in major league history to hit 600 career home runs with a solo shot to left field in the fourth inning last night off Atlanta starter Milt Pappas at Atlanta Stadium.

At least one national magazine has made Braves’ righthander Milt Pappas an “available” when the expansion draft rolls around next month, but everything points to that being a false assumption. Of foremost importance, there is Pappas’ pitching, which has been on par with the other Braves starters, Ron Reed, Phil Niekro and Pat Jarvis. Secondly,

Milt Pappas and Tony Cloninger grabbed the headlines when the Reds and Braves made a six-player swap back on June 11.

Stan Musial recently tabbed this Cardinal club to be the one to “mold the greatest dynasty in the club’s history.” Who could argue with the Man? St. Louis seems intent on a rematch with Detroit in order to exact revenge for the bitter sweep in last year’s World Series with all of the games decided

The trade did not surprise Milt Pappas. Only a few days before the veteran righthander was swapped to Atlanta in a six-player transaction, he had predicted he soon would be wearing a Braves’ uniform.

The Cincinnati Reds defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 7-5 to take the first game of a key series between two clubs tied atop the National League standings.
