Reds sweep Mets....

August 21, 1981:  Cincinnati scored three in the first and four in the second and hold off the Mets 7-4.  Ken Griffey rapped out two hits and drove in 2 runs and George Foster smacked a two run HR to lead the offense.  Mario Soto (6-6) went 7.2 innings allowing four runs of which three were earned to pick up the win.  Joe Price picked up his second save of the season.  Former Red Pat Zachary (4-8) didn't get out of the second inning.

August 22, 1981:  Frank Pastore (5-2) out-dualed the Mets Pete Falcone (2-2) 1-0.  Pastore went the distance allowing only five hits and a walk while striking out seven.  Joe Nolan drove in the only run after Dan Driessen started the two out sixth inning rally with a double.

August 23, 1981:  Tom Seaver (8-6) provided another fine pitching performance and the Reds offense provided plenty of support in the 8-1 win.  Seaver went the distance allowing only one run on two hits with four walks and four strikeouts.  Reds catcher Joe Nolan stayed hot going 3 for 3 with 3 runs scored and 3 RBI.  Nolan doubled and hit his first home run of the season.  Ed Lynch (5-3) suffered the defeat.
