The Orioles scored five runs in the first inning, featuring a theft of home by Davey Johnson, and went on to defeat the Yankees, 10-4. Two walks, a single by Merv Rettenmund and an error accounted for the first two tallies.

After Johnson walked, Mark Belanger hit a two-run single. Johnson took third on the hit and then scored on the front end of a double steal with Belanger. [The Sporting News]
