Pittsburgh brought 2 runs across the plate in the 4th inning with the help of 3 hits. The biggest moment was provided by Mike Brown who brought a roar from the partisan Forbes Field fans when he doubled bringing in two baserunners. Pittsburgh had only 6 hits for the night.
Reuschel(15-6), allowing 1 run for the game, picked up the victory. The losing pitcher was Ed Lynch(16-4). He pitched 8 innings and surrendered just 6 hits and no walks.
'He had his 'A' game tonight,' Chuck Tanner said of Reuschel. 'Very impressive performance.'
