Rookie gives Phils a 5-hit shutout over Mets, 5-0


NEW YORK (AP) – Rookie Marty Bystrom pitched a 5-hit shutout in his first major league start and Garry Maddox drove in two runs to help the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-0 victory over the New York Mets last night. 


The Phillies seventh victory in 10 games enabled them to stay within one-half game of the first place Montreal Expos in the National League East. 


Bystrom, 1-0, issued only one walk and struck out five. 


Pete Rose led off the first with a double off New York starter Mark Bomback, 9-7, and scored on Bake McBride's single. Greg Luzinski doubled home McBride and, with two out, the first of Maddox's two RBI singles scored Luzinski.


Roy Lee Jackson, the second of four Mets pitchers, walked Luzinski with one out in the eighth. Jay Loviglio, running for Luzinski, advanced to second on an infield out, then scored when Maddox slashed a single off the glove of New York third baseman Elliott Maddox. 


Gregg Gross added an RBI single for the Phillies in the ninth.
