Goltz(6-5) earned his pay with a solid performance for St. Louis.  He went 7
and 1/3 innings allowing 1 hit and 6 walks.  The right-handed Goltz lost his
no-hit bid when Lenny Randle singled with nobody out in the 8th inning.  The
game was a scoreless duel until the 6th inning.  
 
Goltz got help from Clay Carroll who earned his 3rd save.  The loss was
charged to Nino Espinosa(1-6).  He surrendered 8 hits and 2 walks in 7
innings.
