DAVE HOLLINS hit a two- run homer and Darren Daulton and Mickey Morandini drove in two runs each to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday and into the World Series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Braves were beaten 4-2, including three straight reverses, in the race for the National League pennant and were denied a third successive trip to the World Series, which opens in Toronto tomorrow.

Mitch Williams, who was 2-0 with two saves in the National League Championship Series, said: 'They've been calling us gypsies, tramps and thieves. Now they can call us National League champions. I've never pitched to win a championship before. It was a trip.'
