Manny Trillo jumps over Pittsburgh's Phil Garner in a failed double play attempt.
Manny Trillo jumps over Pittsburgh's Phil Garner in a failed double play attempt.

Steve Carlton pitched eight strong innings, but it was not enough as the Phillies could not muster much offense off of Pirates starter Jim Bibby, who pitched 11 innings in this pitcher's duel. The Pirates held a a 2-0 leaad going into the ninth when Mike Schmidt hit a game-tying home run (his 13th) that sent the game into extra innings. Unfortunately, the Comeback Kids had not yet perfected their late inning heroics, and Dickie Noles would surrender an RBI single to Mike Easler that would win the game for Pittsburgh. Enrique Romo would earn his third win in relief, and Noles would suffer his second loss. Kent Tekulve saved his sixth game for the Pirates.
