Philadelphia 7, Kansas City 3: Rick Wise scattered five hits over eight innings and scored twice himself as the Phillies overpowered the Royals. John Briggs hit a two-run homer and Dick Allen doubled home two runs off Wally Bunker. Mike Fiore homered for Kansas City. Mike Ryan of the Phillies was injured (three days); he may play again on April 25.
California 4, Montreal 1: Aurelio Rodriguez homered in his second straight at-bat to put the Angels ahead in the first inning, and Montreal never caught up. Jim McGlothlin allowed one unearned run in 8.2 innings; the Expos didn't get their second hit until there were two outs in the ninth, at which point consecutive singles by Ron Fairly and Rusty Staub brought Hoyt Wilhelm in to strike out Mack Jones. Losing pitcher Larry Jaster doubled home the only Montreal run after a two-base error by Sandy Alomar. McGlothlin struck out six and walked one. Claude Raymond threw three scoreless innings of relief for the Expos.
Player of the day: Jim McGlothlin, Angels.
