Joe Niekro pitched a complete game shutout as the Houston White Sox bested the
Baltimore Pirates 2 to 0 at Comiskey Park.
 
Niekro(6-8) was very good in the win.  He gave up just 6 hits and 1 walk in 9
innings dropping his ERA from 3.92 to 3.65.  Houston had just 4 hits for the
night.  
 
The loss was charged to Dock Ellis(9-9).  He was a hard-luck loser, pitching 8
innings and not allowing an earned run.
