San Diego 10, Philadelphia 1: Joe Niekro threw a five-hitter and Nate Colbert drove in four runs for the Padres. Colbert hit a three-run homer in the sixth, and Ed Spiezio a two-run homer in the fourth, both off lower Rick Wise. Cito Gaston (3-for-5) scored three runs. Niekro twice loaded the bases with no outs, but allowed just one run and faced no further threats from the Phillies.

Chicago 4, Montreal 2: Carlos May went 4-for-4 with a homer and three runs. Joel Horlen went seven innings for the win, never retiring the Expos in order but allowing just one unearned run on seven hits. John Bateman homered in the eighth off Sammy Ellis, and Wilbur Wood got the final five outs for the save.

Cleveland 6, Kansas City 0: Sam McDowell overpowered the Royals with a two-hitter. He walked one, struck out seven and at one point retired 17 straight hitters. Ellie Rodriguez had both singles for Kansas City. Lou Klimchcok had three doubles for Cleveland and drove in two runners. Duke Sims of Cleveland was injured (6 days); he will remain on the roster and is eligible to play again on July 31.

California 1, Seattle 0: Lou Johnson drew a base-loaded walk in the first inning to push the only run of the game home. Winner Jim McGlothlin allowed four singles and four walks in eight innings, and Ken Tatum threw a scoreless ninth for the save. Steve Barber allowed five hits in his eight-inning complete game loss.
