Philadelphia, May 11 - Hank Aaron homered in the first off Woodie Fryman to pace the Atlanta Braves over the Philadelphia Phillies today at Shibe Park. Aaron's two run homer, his 10th of the season, was followed by catcher Bob Tillman's second homer in as many days in the second inning. Fryman settled down to strike out 11 Braves, but Atlanta starter Milt Pappas two hit the punchless Phil lineup. Phils secondbaseman Cookie Rojas hit a solo homer in the fifth, but Pappas retired the next ten batters before yielding to Cecil Upshaw in the 9th. Upshaw walked two, but coaxed Larry Hisle to ground into a double play to end the threat. Upshaw registered his 6th save in relief of Pappas' fine work.
     Aaron and Tillman's homers demoralized the Phils who were still shaking their heads of yesterday's loss. The Braves scored seven unanswered runs, capped by a three run blast by Tillman, to overcome a 4-0 deficit. Phillie 1B Richie Allen left yesterday's game after colliding into the stands while chasing a foul ball. Allen returned to the lineup on Saturday, but was hitless in 4 at-bats. The Braves may keep their suitcases pack all season as they ran their road record to 11-2 while playing 2 games under .500 at home. The win lifted Atlanta into a first place tie with the Cincinnati Reds.

Hannan has been Ted's ace
this season -- 4-0; 2.55 ERA
in seven starts.

SEATTLE, May 11 - A Bat Day crowd of 14,000 plus packed clammy Sick's Stadium today hoping to see their newly minted Pilots avoid a sweep at   the hands of the upstart Washington Senators. Instead they saw Nats starter Jim Hannan shackle their heroes, 3-0, to up his record to 4-0 on the year.

     Washington got on the board in the 1st as Frank Howard hit a two-out  single off Gene Brabender (1-3) and was driven home by Mike Epstein's double. Ken McMullen added a solo homer in the second and Del Unser scored on Pilots SS John Kennedy's throwing error in the 3rd to round out the scoring. Hard-luck Brabender pitched a solid game (8 IP, 5 H,3 R, 2 ER, 8 K, 2 BB) but his compadres couldn't put much wood to anything Hannan threw at them. Pitching only the Nats' 3rd complete game on the season, Hannan gave up but 2 hits -- A Tommy Harper single in the 3rd and a Steve Whitaker double in the 4th -- while striking out 8 and walking 3 (1 intentional).   With the sweep the Senators go to 4-1 on the West Coast road trip and wing their way to the Big A in Anaheim.
