Dave McNally became the season's first 18-game winner, pitching the Orioles to a 2-1 victory over the Athletics in a six-hit duel with Catfish Hunter. The A's counted their run in the first inning when Bert Campaneris singled, took second on a sacrifice, stole third and scored on a sacrifice fly by Tommy Davis. Don Buford doubled and Boog Powell singled for the tying run in the third and Chico Salmon hit a homer in the fifth for the winning marker. [The Sporting News]
