Graig Nettles blasted 3 homeruns and had 5 RBI and Ron Guidry threw a complete
game shutout at Three Rivers Stadium as the San Francisco Yankees embarrassed
the Baltimore Pirates by the lopsided score of 14 to 0.
 
Nettles enjoyed a great evening at the plate.  He delivered a solo blast in
the 4th inning, launched a three-run homer in the 6th inning and smashed a
bases-empty 'big-fly' in the 8th inning.  San Francisco rapped out 18 hits
for the night.  
 
Guidry(4-3) was credited with the shutout. Dock Ellis(4-4) ended up with the
loss.  He served up 3 homeruns in his 3 and 1/3 innings.  
 
'I felt great out there tonight,' Nettles said, 'Maybe I should make a regular
habit of getting to bed on time!'
