Cleveland 8, Montreal 7 (15 innings): Lou Klimchock drove in the go-ahead run to end a back-and forth marathon. Larry Burchart threw 5.2 innings of one-hit shutout relief to earn the win, and Horacio Pina threw a perfect frame in the bottom of the 15th for the save; Claude Raymond, who allowed one run in four innings, took the loss. The Expos raked up six runs in the first five innings against Luis Tiant, but Jerry Robertson was stung for four runs in the fifth, including a two-run triple by Tony Horton. Horton hit a two-run homer in the ninth to put the Tribe ahead, but Mike Paul allowed doubles to Bob Bailey and Coco Laboy to tie the game in the bottom of the inning. Laboy also homered and drove in three runs. After the game the Expos demoted Raymond and activated Carroll Sembera; Raymond is eligible to return Aug. 23.

Player of the Day: Larry Burchart, Cleveland
