Cito Gaston had 4 hits and 2 RBI as the Atlanta Athletics topped the Baltimore
Pirates by a score of 6 to 5 at Three Rivers Stadium.
 
Gaston led the offense for Atlanta.  He doubled plating a run in the 1st
inning, singled in the 3rd inning, doubled in the 5th inning and blasted a
solo shot in the 7th inning.  Atlanta managed 11 hits in their victory.
 
Phil Niekro(2-5) got credit for the victory, pitching 5 innings and allowing 4
runs. Niekro got relief help from Pablo Torrealba who gained credit for his
2nd save.  John Candelaria(5-4) was the losing pitcher.  He was unable to
control the Atlanta offense and allowed 10 hits and 2 walks in 7 innings.
 
HAL was just happy to get a win, 'We've had such a bad streak of games -- boy,
it's great to get the monkey off our back.  Now maybe we can relax a little
and play the kind of baseball of which we are capable.'
