Cleveland 4, Philadelphia 2: Lou Klimchock went 4-for-5 and scored twice, including the go-ahead run in the seventh inning. Johnny Callison and Dave Watkins homered for the Phillies' two tallies off winner Stan Williams, who went seven innings. Horacio Pina retired all three men he faced in the ninth, two on strikeouts, for the save. Duke Sims of the Indians was injured (two days) and will remain on the roster.
California 7, Chicago 4: Bill Voss and Jim Spencer each went 3-for-4 with a homer and a pair of RBIs as the Angels snapped their eight-game losing streak. Rick Reichardt also drove in two runs; he and Voss hit back-to-back triples in the third inning off loser Billy Wynne. Tom Murphy scattered nin hits in eight innings for the win; Eddie Fisher gave up three runs in the ninth, including a two-run homer by Buddy Bradford, and Ken Tatum got the final out with two on for the save.
Montreal 5, Seattle 4: Bob Bailey's three-run homer in the fifth highlighted a four-run inning for the Expos, and Montreal hung on despite allowing three homers to the Pilots. Steve Renko got the win with seven innings of six hit ball, and Carroll Sembera and Dan McGinn threw one perfect inning of relief apiece to protect the lead. Gary Sutherland hit a solo homer and a double and scored twice for Montreal. Starter and loser Garry Roggenburk was deactivated after the game and Dick Simpson recalled.
San Diego 5, Kansas City 3: Clay Kirby allowed five hits in eight innings -- three of them in the second inning, when the Royals scored all their runs -- as the Padres came back to win. Al Ferrara homered and doubled in two official at-bats; he also walked twice and was hit by a pitch. He scored two runs and drove in a pair. Frank Reberger staggered through the ninth inning for the save; he allowed one hit, walked one and got two outs on line drives. Roger Nelson allowed four runs on eight hits and four walks in five innings for the loss.
