Tuesday's games

Wednesday's game
Kansas City (Drago) at Seattle (Brunet)

Philadelphia 5, Chicago 2: Rick Wise allowed four hits and two runs in eight innings, and Don Money and Deron Johnson each had two-RBI singles in the Phillies win. Wise struck out eight and walked none, but had a difficult third inning in which Gail Hopkins homered and Bill Melton and Carlos May followed with consecutive doubles. The Phillies' Larry Hisle was injured (five days) and will remain on the roster.

Seattle 1, Kansas City 0: Surprise starter Steve Barber spun a four hit shutout for the Pilots. The lefty walked one, hit one and struck out five. No Royals reached scoring position, and only one hit an outfield fly. Seattle scored its only run in the first inning when Mike Hegan walked, advanced to second on a Roger Nelson wild pitch and scored on Don Mincher's single.

Player of the Day: Steve Barber, Seattle.
