Philadelphia 4, Montreal 3 (18 innings): Rick Joseph doubled home Dick Allen from first base in the bottom of the 18th to end the marathon. Starters Bill Stoneman and Woodie Fryman each went nine innings, allowing one run apiece. Fryman allowed six hits, Stoneman seven. Mike Ryan homered for the Phillies tally of Stoneman; the Expos scored theirs on two walks, a balk and a sac fly. The bullpens then tacked five innings of shutout ball before the Expos broke through against Jerry Johnson for two runs in the top of the 15, with Gary Sutherland and Mack Jones cracking RBI doubles. But Roy Face couldn't hold the lead in the bottom of the inning; Tonly Taylor singled, went to third on Larry Hisle's single and scored on Johnny Callison's double-play grounder, which was followed by an Allen homer. Dick Radatz was the loser, Al Raffo the winner. Deron Johnson (1 day) and Callison (2 days) were injured for the Phillies; they will remain on the active roster. Ron Fairly (7 days) was injured for Montreal; he will be replaced on the roster by Don Shaw and is eligible to return July 1.
Seattle 6, Cleveland 3: Greg Goossen homered and doubled for three RBIs and Steve Barber allowed two earned runs in 8.1 innings for the Pilots. Barber allowed eight hits, walked two and struck out six. The Pilots scored three runs off Sam McDowell in the first inning on consecutive RBI doubles by Wayne Comer, Goossen and Tommy Davis. Bob Locker got the final two outs for the save. Seattle's John Kennedy was injured (five games); he will be replaced on the roster by Rich Rollins and is eligible to return July 1.
