Bucs Topple Jints in 2 of 3

June 5, 1981
PITTSBURGH -- Mike Easler banged out 3 hits, including 2 doubles that drove in 3 runs, to lead Pittsburgh to a 6-1 win over the visiting Giants. Bill Madlock (6) put every muscle he had behind a massive 452-foot, 2-run home run to dead CF in the 3rd inning. Pascual Perez (2-2) evened his 1981 slate with a strong 7 innings on the bump.

June 6, 1981
PITTSBURGH --Tony Pena rapped a PH, 2-run single in the B8th as the Pirates roared from behind with 3 runs in the frame to win, 3-2. Bill North (4 hits) and Milt May (3 hits) helped the Giants to a 2-0 lead behind stellar pitching from Tom Griffin. He would eventually tire, and Greg Minton (3-2) could not hold the lead.

June 7, 1981
PITTSBURGH -- Vida Blue (3-4) was in complete charge of this game from beginning to end, yielding just 1 run on 5 hits for a CG, 5-1 victory. Jack Clark's (10) 2-run blast in the 4th was the difference-maker. Darrell Evans (3) added a solo shot.
