CLEMENTE GETS 2 HITS IN BUCS' HOME OPENER LOSS TO CUBS
PITTSBURGH - Roberto Clemente got on the road to 3,000 hits by going 2-5 and scoring a run. However, it wasn't enough as the Cubs ruined the Pirates' home opener, 6-4.
Clemente, who was 0-7 with a walk in the first two games of the season, hit a ground ball single into left. He then led off the third with a single and scored on a triple by Manny Sanguillen.
The Cubs took the lead in the top of the third on a three run homer by Billy Williams off of starter Bob Moose.
Game two of the three game series is Wednesday. Bob Johnson (9-10, 3.45) will get his first start of the season facing the former Pirate lefty Juan Pizarro.
