Almon was a seemingly constant irritant to the hometown fans as he provided much of the offense for the visitors. He doubled in the 2nd inning, banged out a single in the 8th inning and launched a three-run homer in the 9th inning. Pittsburgh totaled 14 hits on the afternoon.
For Reuschel(14-6) it was his 2nd shutout this year. Bill Gullickson(9-12) suffered the loss. He pitched 7 innings and surrendered 9 hits and 1 walk.
