Kent Tekulve got the save in game 1 of the 1978 season as he induced a game ending double play with the bases loaded and the Pirates clinging to a 5-4 lead.  Dave Parker hit a homerun and Rennie Stennett had 3 hits to help the Pirates win the season opener 5-4 against their rival Cubs.  John Candelaria went a shaky 7 innings to pickup the win.  Rick Reuschel suffered the loss.  The Cubbies took game 2 as they pounded the Pirates ace Bert Blyleven winning 10-6.  Dave Kingman had 4 rbi's including his first homerun of the season.  Ray Burris got the win despite allowing 6 runs.  The Pirates took game 3 with a score of 6-1 as Jerry Reuss pitched 7 strong innings only allowing 1 run to pickup the win.  Woodie Fryman didn't last long as he allowed 6 runs in 4 innings.  The Pirates hit .317 in the series but only hit 1 homerun.  The Pirates travel to St. Louis while the Cubs visit the Mets at Shea.
