Larry Hisle scored three times for the Phillies; Frank Baker had a pinch-hit homer for the Indians. Cleveland's Tony Horton was called out in the sixth inning for leaving third base early on an apparent sacrifice fly.

San Diego 5, Kansas City 1: Nate Colbert homered in the sixth to break a scoreless tie and singled home another run in the Podres' four-run seventh. Dick Kelley allowed one run on eight hits in seven innings for the win. Colbert was 3-for-4 with a double. Ollie Brown also had a pair of RBIs for the Padres.

Montreal 5, Seattle 1: Steve Renko threw a five-hit complete game for Montreal. The Expos hit three homers off loser Bob Meyer, solo shots by Don Bosch and Bob Bailey and a two-run homer by Ron Fairly. Steve Whitaker homered for Seattle's run. After the game, the Pilots demoted Meyer and activated Garry Roggenburk.
