Phillies top Pirates in 3 pitching duels

Game 1: Philadelphia 3 Pittsburgh 1
W: Kaat (4-2)  L: Robinson, D (5-4)
All the runs were scored in the 1st inning, then both pitchers settled in the rest of the way.

Game 2: Philadelphia 3 Pittsburgh 2
W: Carlton (7-2)  L: Blyleven (2-7)
Carlton kept the Bucs handcuffed through 7 innings, but walked in 2 runs in the top of the 8th.  Gene Garber came on and got Willie Stargell to fly out with the bases loaded to save the game and the day for Philadelphia.

Game 3: Philadelphia 2 Pittsburgh 0
W: Lerch (6-3)  L: Candelaria (4-4)
The 'Candy Man' only allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, but Randy Lerch held the Pirates scoreless on just 3 hits.
