The Athletics gained their sixth straight victory in the club's longest winning streak of the season by defeating the Yankees, 4-3. The Yankees, who had been shut out for 25 innings, broke their scoreless slump at the start of the game with a homer by Jerry Kenney. Ron Hansen added a round-tripper in the second before Dave Duncan hit one for the A's in the third.

After the Yankees added a tally in the fourth, the Athletics won the game with three runs in the sixth. Joe Rudi beat out a bunt, Felipe Alou singled and Sal Bando hit a sacrifice fly for the first run. Don Mincher doubled, scoring Alou. Duncan walked and Dick Green then singled to drive in Don Mincher with the winning marker. [The Sporting News]
