Seattle 6, Philadelphia 4 (14 innings): Diego Segui threw five innings of scoreless, one-hit relief to hold off the Phillies. The Pilots had a 4-1 lead going into the ninth, but Dave Watkins hit a three-run homer with two outs off Jim Bouton to tie the score. The Pilots got three hits, a stolen base and an error from Dick Allen in the top of the 14th to plate two runs. Mike Hegan (Pilots) and Allen (Phillies) each had solo homers.
Cleveland 8, Montreal 4: Tony Horton's three-run homer in the seventh gave Cleveland a lead the Expos never seriously challenged. Horton also singled, walked and scored a second run. Jose Cardenal (2-for-4) tripled, walked and stole a pair of bases; he, Duke Sims and Ken Harrelson also scored two runs apiece. Horacio Pina got the win with two innings in which he allowed just an unearned run, and Ron Law threw two scoreless innings for the save. Rusty Staub homered for the Expos off starter Stan Williams, who was knocked out of the box without retiring a man in the sixth inning.
Chicago 6, Kansas City 1: Luis Aparicio homered, tripled and doubled for the White Sox, who benefited from a rangeless Royals defense. Tommy John kept the hometeam scoreless until the ninth inning and finished with a seven-hitter. Kansas City starter Mike Hedlund allowed six runs on eight hits in five innings as Lou Piniella and Scott Northey allowed fly balls to fall in and the out-of-position Paul Schall struggled at shortstop.
San Diego 5, California 0: Dick Kelley threw a five-hit shutout and Chris Cannizzaro hit a two-run homer in the Padres win. Kelley walked four (Sandy Alomar three times) and struck out nine men. Cannizzaro also had a double. Al Ferrara was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs for the Padres.
