Lo and behold, the Astros snapped their 12 game losing skid, and won for just the 2nd time in 18 tries against Atlanta. Kid chucker Jack Billingham, a consolation prize in the Rusty Staub trade snafu with Montreal, fanned 11 and won his third game.
And finally, the Phillies took two out of three at Pittsburgh, winning twice on shutouts by Rick Wise and Grant Jackson. The Quakers went half the season before they even hurled one whitewash, but this was Jackson's second in a row. "Who the hell cares?" inquired the Pirates, before being fined by the league office. This induced a team shrug from the hopelessly middling Pirates, who just want the season to end. They did care enough to turn a bases loaded line drive off the bat of Rich Allen into the season's fourth triple play in the first inning of Thursday's contest, however.
Okay, see you at Dodger Stadium!
