Orlando Cepeda and Rico Carty batted in two runs apiece to lead the Braves to a 5-3 victory over the Astros. Pat Jarvis, who drove in the final run with a double in the ninth inning, beat the Astros for the sixth straight time over two seasons and for the 12th time in 13 decisions for his career.

Cepeda got his RBIs with a double in the first inning after Sonny Jackson walked and Hank Aaron singled. Jackson walked again in the third, Aaron doubled and Carty singled for another pair. Doug Rader homered with a man on base for the Astros. [The Sporting News]
