Chuck Dobson pitched a four-hitter and Sal Bando batted in four runs with a homer and single as the Athletics defeated the Red Sox, 7-1. Bando hit his homer after a single by Joe Rudi in the first inning. Rudi singled again in the fifth, Rick Monday doubled and Bando drove them home with single. Dave Duncan hit an inside-the-park homer for the A's in the sixth. Dobson's bid for a shutout was spoiled when Carl Yastrzemski hit for the circuit in the ninth. [The Sporting News]
