Cleveland 2, Montreal 1 (12 innings): Hawk Harrelson hit a two-out homer in the bottom of the 12th off Don Shaw to end a marathon of stranded baserunners. The Indians left 13 men on base, most of them against starter Bill Stoneman, who went six innings and allowed one run on seven hits and three walks. Shaw went 5.2 innings, allowing only one hit other than the Harrelson homer. Larry Burchart, who three three scoreless innings, got the win. Montreal left 16 on base in the contest, twice loading the bases with one out and getting just one run out of those chances. Shaw was deactivated after the game and Dick Radatz was called up. Shaw is eligible to return June 21.
Kansas City 7. Chicago 1: Jerry Adair drove in three runs on three hits and Wally Bucker threw a five-hitter in the Royals victory. Lou Piniella hit a solo homer and scored twice. Loser Paul Edmondson allowed five runs, all earned, in six innings.
California 2, San Diego 0: Tom Murphy threw a four-hit shutout and Jim Spencer hit a solo homer for the Angels, who have now followed an eight-game losing streak with five straight wins. Murphy struck out three and walked one. San Diego starter and loser Gary Ross allowed one earned run on seven hits in 7.1 innings.
Seattle 11, Philadelphia 1: The Pilots popped four homers and a pair of triples in the rout. Steve Barber held the Phillies scoreless until the ninth, when he allowed two hits and threw a pair of wild pitches, and Jim Bouton entered to get the final two outs. Greg Goossen, Ray Oyler, Rich Rollins and Jim Pagliaroni all homered for Seattle. Goosen also tripled and singled. He scored three runs and drove in three. Rollins was 4-for-5 with a triple.
