PITTSBURGH - An unearned run on a Jose Pagan error allowed the Dodgers to tie the ballgame in the 7th. A pinch hit single by Jim Lefebvre in the 10th off Dave Guisti gave LA a 5-3 win over the Pirates.
Roberto Clemente was 0-3 and is still 53 hits away from 3,000.
An error by Willie Stargell also allowed an unearned run in a 2 run 1st inning. The Bucs tied it in the 2nd on Bob Robertson's 2 run HR, his 3rd of the year. In the 3rd, Stargell gave the Bucs a 3-2 lead when he drove in Al Oliver.
Jim Brewer (5-2) got the win in relief in relief of Claude Osteen. Hard luck loser Bob Moose (5-3) pitched 9.1 innings, striking out 7.
The loss puts the Pirates in a virtual tie with NY for 1st place in the NL East. NY beat the Astros 5-4. The Cubs lost to SF 4-0 and remain 2 GB.
The Pirates travel to Chicago. Friday, it's Steve Blass (8-1) v Fergie Jenkins (8-5).
