Kansas City 5, California 4 (10 innings): The Royals got four innings of scoreless, one-hit relief from Dave Wickersham and Tom Burgmeier while scoring twice in the seventh and twice in the eighth to tie the game before Lou Pinella's sac fly in the bottom of the 10th plated Pat Kelly with the game winner. Kelly scored twice for K.C, and Jay Johnstone twice for the Angels. Jim McGlothlin didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning, extending the Royals' scoreless streak to open the season to 15 innings.
Cleveland 6, Seattle 4 (10 innings): Duke Sims's two-run homer in the top of the 10th made a winner of Stan Williams, who tossed two perfect innings of relief. Tony Horton scored three times for the Tribe and hit one of two first inning home runs off Seattle starter Gene Brabender, the other being a leadoff shot by Jose Cardenal. Steve Whitaker hit a pinch-hit bases-loaded triple in the seventh to tie the game, but Mike Paul struck out Tommy Harper and Tommy Davis to preserve the tie. Luis Tiant was charged with four earned runs but allowed just three hits in 6.1 innings (he did walk three.) Losing pitcher John O'Donoghue worked three innings.
Chicago 6, San Diego 4: Ken Berry capped off a 3-for-4 day by starting the decisive rally in the bottom of the eighth. He scored one run and drove in a pair. Jerry Nyman vultured the win with two innings of one-run ball for the White Sox.
Montreal 7, Philadelphia 6: Rusty Staub put an end to a see-saw game with a walk-off single off All Raffo. The Phillies scored one run in each of six different innings, and the Expos scored in five innings. Don Money homered and doubled for the Phillies, Tony Taylor scored twice and Dick Allen homered. Mack Jones scored three runs with a two-run homer and a stolen base for the Expos. Gary Waslewski was credited with the win. Gary Sutherland was injured (15 days) and replaced on the roster by Reny Hermoso; Sutherland is eligible to return on May 2.
Player of the day: Tony Horton, Cleveland
