Pat Dobson, who was obtained from the Padres during the winter, gained his first victory in an Orioles' uniform, pitching the route to defeat the Yankees, 6-1. The Orioles broke a 1-1 tie with a three-run outburst in the sixth inning. Davey Johnson doubled to score Don Buford with the go-ahead tally. After an intentional pass to Boog Powell, Frank Robinson and Brooks Robinson drove in additional runs with singles. [The Sporting News]
