Third sacker Brian Radke flashed the leather to support losing pitcher Dave King who deserved a better fate.

Dom D’Avella sparkled at short, John Ribbecon was sensational at third. The pitching tandem of Frank Hruska and Randy Crispo shared the win.

Shortstop Bill Snyder and first sacker Bill Tomlinson led a stout defense.

The Pirates nipped the Tigers 10-9 in nine innings to take a stranglehold on second place in the NL. With two out in the bottom of the ninth Darryl Ferguson’s clutch hit drove in the winning run. Phil Tiessen had a three run jack in the seventh to tie the game. First baseman Bill Dunfield turned a double play while Chuck Paglia was a standout at third. Pitchers Ron Edwards and Jim Smith shut down the heavy hitting Tigers. Mike Moulden, Mike Gustar and Lee Revill led the Tigers with three hits each. Ken Moulden, Dave McInnis, Joe Gosselin and Ron Lacroix led a tight defense.

The Orioles moved into possession of second place in the AL by knocking off the NL pennant winning Braves 17-13. Kerry Trevaskis and Ron Crowley led the Orioles with three RBIs each while Joe Weirda, Ted Butler and Dave Anderson delivered clutch hits. Outfielders John Carnahan and Bernie Mobach made brilliant catches. Shortstop Jay Howes snagged a vicious liner and threw to first sacker John Winegarden for a double play. The Braves had a bit of a letdown after clinching the NL flag. Rick Pearson, Terry Stoltz and Ray Sniuolis were the pick of the Braves.

The AL pennant winning Indians mauled the undermanned A’s led by the hitting of Rick McKenzie, Matt DiTommaso, Brian McKeown, Paul McKinney, Dave Weir, Dave Sawatsky and Earl Sutherland, the speedy running of Keith Beaver, and the flamboyant sliding of Frank Stechey. Replacement Brian Carey led the A’s with three hits while Bill Grahlman and Ray D’Andrade hit well.
