Finally, Mack Jones, a native of Atlanta and a long time Brave, punished his former team by smoking one into the stands against them. It was all part of a Canadian onslaught on the southern city as the Expos prevailed, 8-1. The only Braves run came on a 2nd-inning homer by, of all people, yesterday's Fail Champ, Rico Carty. Rico now has 16 homers, but just 39 rbi. He also added a double as Phil Niekro quietly seethed in the dugout, remembering Rico's ineptitude yesterday. Meanwhile, today's starter, Ron Reed, just didn't have it, and is considering a career in the NBA.
