Chuck Dobson had the distinction of pinning the first shutout on the Twins this season as the Athletics swept a doubleheader, 3-0 and 6-3. Dobson allowed only four singles in posting his seventh straight victory. Don Mincher had three hits for the A's and drove in two runs. In the nightcap, Mincher continued his hitting with two homers, knocking in four runs. Harmon Killebrew homered for the Twins. [The Sporting News]
