. . . where the 1970s live forever!

In a series to determine the worst team in the league, the Braves completed the three-game sweep of the Cardinals, posting a 7-1 victory. Jeff Burroughs led the Braves' attack, driving in a run with a double in the first inning and leading off with a home run in the fourth. Dale Murphy had a solo round-tripper in the fourth. George Hendrick homered for the Cards, who had only one run in each of the three losses. [The Sporting News]
