Today's scores and summaries:

Orioles 4, Yankees 0 at Baltimore (night game):
Dave McNally pitched a four-hitter and also drove in a run with a double as the Orioles defeated the Yankees, 4-0. Fritz Peterson matched ciphers with McNally until the seventh inning when the Orioles erupted for three runs. Paul Blair singled and counted the first tally when Brooks Robinson doubled. Robinson was out at third on a grounder by Mark Belanger, but McNally then doubled to drive in Belanger before scoring himself on a single by Don Buford.

Indians 4, Red Sox 0 at Boston (day game):
Formerly with the Reds, Milt Wilcox made his first A. L. start for the Indians and pitched a two-hitter to defeat the Red Sox, 4-0. Tommy McCraw, who replaced the injured Chris Chambliss at first base for the Indians in the sixth inning, came to bat in the eighth and smashed a three-run homer. The Patriots Day game, which began at 11 a.m., drew a crowd of 24,989.

Dodgers 8, Braves 3 at Atlanta (night game):
Willie Davis and Manny Mota led the Dodgers' 16-hit attack in an 8-3 victory over the Braves before an Atlanta opening-night turnout of 20,203. Davis and Mota each homered with a man on base in a collection of seven hits between them.

Astros 7, Giants 2 at Houston (night game):
Doug Rader drove in two runs with a homer in the fifth inning and two more with a triple in the eighth to supply the Astros' power in a 7-2 victory over the Giants.

Cardinals 5, Phillies 4 at Philadelphia (night game):
Falling short in a ninth-inning rally, the Phillies lost to the Cardinals, 5-4, to disappoint their opening-night crowd of 38,182. The Cardinals took a 5-3 lead in the top half of the ninth with two runs on a single by Ed Crosby, double by Ted Simmons, single by Jose Cruz and sacrifice fly by Dal Maxvill. In the home half, the Phillies had the bases loaded on three walks with one out but scored only one run on a single by Larry Bowa. Roger Freed struck out before Bowa singled and Tim McCarver, batting after Bowa, grounded out to end the game.
