Cleveland 3, San Diego 2: Russ Snyder singled home pinch-runner Dave Nelson in the bottom of the ninth to resurrect the win for Cleveland starter Dick Ellsworth, who had a five-hit shutout with 26 outs before yielding a game-tying two-run double to the Padres' Roberto Pena. Jose Cardenal and Duke Sims had solo homers for the Tribe off San Diego starter Al Santorini, who allowed five hits in six innings. Tommy Sisk took the loss. Ellsworth walked two and struck out seven. After the game, the Padres reactivated Al Ferrara and deactivated Jerry Morales, who is eligible for reactivation after May 18.
Montreal 6, Kansas City 1: Mack Jones' three-run homer capped a six-run outburst in the eighth inning to give the Expos the win. Bill Stoneman, the Montreal starter, took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, but with one out Pat Kelly singled. A stolen base and two walks later, Kelly scored on a wild pitch to give the Royals a 1-0 lead, and Stoneman came out for a pinch hitter -- Jones, who stayed in the game to hit the big homer two innings later. Gary Waslewski got the win with a scoreless inning of relief, and Claude Raymond worked the final two innings for the Expos, inducing two double-play grounders.
Player of the day: Mack Jones, Montreal
