Seattle 6, Cleveland 5 (10 innings): Steve Whitaker singled home John Kennedy in the bottom of the 10th to cap the comeback as the Pilots navigated around a five-run deficit. Wayne Comer hit a two-run homer for Seattle off Cleveland starter Mike Paul in the seventh, and Comer and pinch hitter Mike Hegan singled home runs with two outs in the bottom of the ninth off losing pitcher Ron Law to force extras. Ken Harrelson homered for Cleveland, and Tony Horton went 4-for-5 with a run and an RBI. Jim Bouton gets the win.
Seattle 4, Cleveland 3: The Pilots secured the doubleheader sweep as Jim Bouton threw 2.2 innings of hitless relief and Mike Hegan hit a two-run homer. Bouton relieved Gene Brabender with two on and one out in the sixth, got out of the jam and wound up with his second win of the day. Bob Locker threw a perfect ninth for the save. Duke Sims and Vern Fuller each homered for the Tribe off Brabender. Steve Hargan worked all eight innings for the bullpen-depleted Indians, allowing four runs on nine hits and four walks; he struck out five.
