Cleveland 7, California 6 (12 innings): The Cleveland bullpen allowed one hit in 4.2 innings before Ken Harrelson scored his third run of the game to win it. It was a remarkably sloppy game, with a pair of three-base errors (Jose Cardenal for Cleveland, Roger Repoz for California) and an outfield collision between Rick Reichardt and Jay Johnstone for California that was credited as an inside-the-park homer for Harrelson. The Indians committed three other errors, the Angels one. Pedro Borbon took the loss, Mike Paul got the win. Jim Fregosi went 5-for-6 with a homer, two doubles, three runs and two RBIs.

San Diego 8, Philadelphia 3: Ed Spiezio hit a pair of two-run homers off Jerry Johnson and Tommy Dean added another. Johnny Podres went six innings for the win, allowing three runs on seven hits, one a homer by Dick Allen. Dean scored twice for the Padres. 

Seattle 6, Kansas City 5, (18 innings): Dick Simpson singled home the game-winner off Tom Burgmeier to end the marathon. Both teams depleted their bullpens; Seattle got six one-hit innings from Jim Bouton, and Burgmeier was in his fifth inning for the Royals when Simpson ended it. Lou Piniella drove in four runs for the Royals with a homer, two doubles and a single in nine at-bats. Wayne Comer homered for Seattle. John Gelnar got the win with two scoreless innings. The Royals activated Dave Morehead after the game and demoted Hawk Taylor, who is eligible to return Aug. 18.

Player of the Day: Ed Spiezio, San Diego
