San Diego 9, Montreal 2: The Expos bumbled their way through four errors and a strikeout-passed ball to help the Padres to a one-sided finale. Al Santorini didn't need all the assistance, as he allowed just four hits and one run in eight innings, striking out seven without a walk.

California 2, Cleveland 0: Tom Murphy threw a three-hit shutout and got solo homers from Tom Egan and Roger Repoz. Murphy faced three batters over the minimum. He walked two, struck out three and got a pair of double plays turned behind him. Stan Williams took the loss, allowing seven hits in eight innings without a walk. Jim Spencer (Angels) sits the second game of the doubleheader and the Monday game with an injury; he will remain on the roster.

Cleveland 4, California 2: Tony Horton drove in two runs and Sam McDowell fanned seven in eight innings as the Tribe salvaged a split of the doubleheader. Cleveland hit three doubles in a three-run third, which ended when Jay Johnstone gunned down Ken Suarez at the plate. McDowell yielded nine hits and walked two, and Horacio Pina worked a perfect ninth for the save.

Player of the Day: Tom Murphy, California
