Cleveland 7, Montreal 3: Max Alvis bopped a pair of RBI doubles and played a sparkling game afield, and Jose Cardenal stole three bases as the Tribe pulled away from the Expos. Cleveland peppered three Montreal pitchers for 13 hits and three walks. Stan Williams (6.1 innings, six hits, three runs) was the winner, Howie Reed the loser. Rusty Staub was injured; he is eligible to play Aug. 1 and  will remain on the roster.

Chicago 2, California 1: Joel Horlen went the distance, allowing five hits, and set up the winning run with a bunt single. Loser Jim McGlothlin allowed 12 hits in seven innings but struck out nine, Tommy McCraw had three singles in four at-bats for the White Sox.

Kansas City 10, San Diego 1: Bill Butler fired a six-hitter and carried a shutout into the eighth inning. The Royals collected 13 hits and benefited from three Padres errors. Joe Niekro allowed two earned runs and four in all in six innings for the loss. Pat Kelly, Bob Oliver and Ed Kirkpatrick each scored twice; Oliver and Joe Foy each had a pair of RBIs. Jerry Adair was injured and must sit the next two days.

Seattle 2, Philadelphia 2: The Pilots got four innings of one-hit, shutout relief from Jim Bouton and Diego Segui to overtake the Phillies. Ron Stone scored both of Philadelphia runs on outs after reaching third on hit-and-run singles by Cookie Rojas. Segui gets the win, Turk Farrell the loss.

Player of the Day: Max Alvis, Cleveland
