After the game, the Whites reactivated Bobby Knoop and deactivated Paul Edmondson.

Philadelphia 4, Seattle 3 (10 innings): Cookie Rojas' hit-and-run double scored Don Money from first base in the top of the 10 to give the Phillies the lead. Rojas also started a triple play, the first of the season for any team, in the seventh, snagging a line off the bat of Merritt Ranew and catching both Steve Whitaker and John Donaldson off base. Rick Wise allow six hits and three runs in nine innings for the win, and Bill Wilson worked the bottom of the 10th for the save. Diego Segui took the loss. After the game, the Pilots reactivated Bob Meyer and Mike Hegan and deactivated George Brunet and Merritt Ranew.
