July 18, 1985: Pirates (35-52) at Padres (50-40)

One run was the difference at JACK MURPHY STADIUM as the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the ice-cold San Diego Padres 6 to 5. 

The game was won by Pittsburgh when they scored a run in the top of the 9th inning. After an out was recorded, Tony Pena drew a walk. Jim Morrison was next to bat, but he was a strikeout victim. Steve Kemp then doubled scoring the run. Pittsburgh finished with 10 hits in the victory. 

The win went to Al Holland(1-2) who allowed no runs in 1 inning. Holland was helped out by Cecilio Guante who recorded his 14th save. Goose Gossage(4-3) took the loss in relief. 

The Pittsburgh ballclub's record now stands at 35-52. San Diego can't seem to snap out of their recent 'funk'. Now they have a miserable 1-9 record over the last couple weeks.
