The score was tied 2-2 at the end of six innings. The Pirates took the lead 3-2 in the 7th Inning and I pinch-hit for Valenzuela who was leading off the Dodger 8th Inning. This seemed to be the Dodgers’ undoing as relievers Zachary and Hooton allowed a run in the 8th Inning and two runs in the 9th Inning.
The Pirate bats were patient all game. A combination of badly time Walks and not good fielding by the Dodgers allowed the Pirates to scrape together the final handful of runs.
Rhoden was sneakily dominant - he allowed solo homeruns to Landreaux and Guerrero, a triple to Guerrero and double to Brock and then only a solitary single to Steve Sax. This was the second really good start in a row for Rhoden.

Los Angeles’ Alejandro Pena pitched a No-Hitter.
He issued only 1 Walk and only one other batter reached base on an error (Jason Thompson on bad throw by Dodger second baseman Steve Sax). This performance is even more impressive considering the Los Angeles fielding rating was the lowest possible for the game.
Pittsburgh: John Tudor
Los Angeles: Bob Welch

The Dodgers 3-4-5 hitters wailed on Tudor’s pitching. Steve Sax set the table well for them.
Bob Welch pitched well enough and once he had a lead he held on to it.
