Philadelphia 3, Kansas City 1: Johnny Callison doubled home a pair of runs in the seventh inning and Woodie Fryman outdueled Jim Rooker as the Phillies swept the series from the Royals.

The Expos used three relievers to work the last four innings; Roy Face got the last two outs for a save. Coco Laboy was injured (two games); he will remain on the Montreal roster.

Seattle 9, San Diego 0: Tommy Harper homered to lead off the game, and George Brunet threw an eight-hit shutout as the Pilots ended their five-game losing streak. Harper went 3-for-4 with three runs scored, a steal and a walk. Wayne Comer was 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored. Padres starter Al Santorini was peppered for six runs in three innings; seven straight hitters reached base against him in the five-run second. Brunet walked four and struck out three. He was demoted after the game and replaced on the roster by Garry Roggenburk; Brunet is eligible to return for games of May 13
