The Baltimore Pirates edged the Atlanta Athletics at Three Rivers Stadium by
the score of 4 to 3.
 
Dennis Martinez(4-2) did the job in relief, and he got credit for the win.  He
surrendered 4 hits and no walks in 3 and 2/3 innings.  Atlanta tried
unsuccessfully to come back in the 9th.  
 
Kent Tekulve was credited with his 2nd save.  Vida Blue(2-7) absorbed the
loss.  'We just made a lot of mistakes, mostly mental,' HAL said.  'It's bad
enough when the other team beats you, but when you start beating yourselves,
that's really bad.'
