During the first game of a Sunday doubleheader on May 23, 1976, Bruce Sutter earned his first of three hundred career saves as a reliever for the Chicago Cubs visiting the Pittsburgh Pirates at Three Rivers Stadium. The Cubbies took the first game, 6-5, with a Oscar Zamora win. Despite home runs from Bucs players Richie Zisk and Bill Robinson, Kent Tekulve got the loss. In the second contest, Pittsburgh clubbed the Cubs 9-1, captained by a Jerry Reuss complete game win, bolstered by roundtrippers from Bill Robinson and Al Oliver, as Mike Garman took the defeat. Willie Stargell appeared in both games, notching career triple #50 in the later meeting. Sutter would return for an inning pitched during the rout in front of a crowd of 20,477.
