Kansas City 9, Philadelphia 4: Bob Oliver drove in five runs, four of them with a homer in the seventh, as the Royals steamrolled the Phillies. Bill Butler allowed just one hit in the first four innings, but Johnny Callison hit a two-run homer in the fifth and Butler only went six innings, allowing four runs -- which was good enough for the win. Dave Morehead threw three hitless innings to get credit for a save. Joe Foy drove in three runs for the Royals, and Scott Northey scored three times.

Kansas City 6, Philadelphia 1: Roger Nelson threw a four-hitter and the Royals got runs from six different hitters as they swept the doubleheader. Bob Oliver, Jackie Hernandez, Ellie Rodriguez and Nelson himself each drove in a run and scored a run. Nelson walked one and struck out six.

Player of the Day; Bob Oliver, Kansas City
