Bucs Jolt Jints

August 18, 1981
PITTSBURGH -- Jeff Leonard, Bob Brenly and Enos Cabell had RBI singles in the T11th as San Francisco topped Pittsburgh 5-2 in extras.

August 19, 1981
PITTSBURGH -- Luis Tiant gets his first start for the Bucs (I don't ever remember him as a Pirate) and pitches very well through 6 innings. He gave up 2 runs, but the Pirates remained scoreless against Ed Whitson. Pittsburgh finally busted through with 4 runs in the B8th to make a winner of Grant Jackson (3-1). Greg Minton (4-3) took the loss. Tony Pena drove in 2 to power the Bucs uprising.

August 20, 1981
PITTSBURGH -- Jason Thompson (6) blasted a 3-run shot to power a 4-run 1st inning for the Pirates. They went on to a 4-1 win. Odell Jones (1-0) in his first start of the year went 6 innings of shut out ball on just 2 hits.
