Today's scores and summaries:

Angels 6, Tigers 5 at California (night game):
After tying the score with a pinch-single in the ninth inning, Andy Etchebarren remained in the game and singled again in the 11th to give the Angels a 6-5 victory over the Tigers. Dave Chalk opened the 11th with a single, took second on a sacrifice by Rusty Torres and crossed the plate on Etchebarren's hit.

Royals 5, Indians 3 at Kansas City (night game):
John Mayberry, who reportedly will earn $1,000,000 with the Royals over the next five-year period, batted in his first three runs of the season to help defeat the Indians, 5-3. Mayberry accounted for his first RBI with a single in the first inning and then drove in two runs with a single in the eighth after the Royals had loaded the bases on a single by Cookie Rojas, walk to Amos Otis and single by George Brett.

Brewers 3, Rangers 1 at Texas (night game):
The relief pitching of Eduardo Rodriguez enabled Jim Colborn to emerge with a victory as the Brewers defeated the Rangers, 3-1. Rodriguez yielded two hits in three innings.

Braves 3, Dodgers 1 at Atlanta (night game):
Tommy John, making his first major league appearance since rupturing a ligament in his pitching elbow in July, 1974, said he made "only one bad pitch," but it cost the Dodgers' lefthander a 3-1 loss to the Braves. In the fifth inning, Rowland Office and Jerry Royster singled. John then threw a "hanging curve" that Darrell Evans smashed for a homer.

Giants 14, Reds 7 at Cincinnati (night game):
Bobby Murcer drove in four runs, two with a homer and two with a single, as the Giants piled up 18 hits and defeated the Reds, 14-7. Von Joshua singled and Derrel Thomas tripled before Murcer hit his homer in the fifth inning. The Giants capped their scoring with six runs in the ninth, two crossing the plate on a single by Murcer for his third hit of the game.

Astros 4, Padres 1 at Houston (night game):
The Astros erupted for four runs in the fifth inning, defeating the Padres, 4-1. The Padres' lone run came on a homer by Johnny Grubb in the third inning. In the fourth, a walk, double by Enos Cabell and infield out by Cesar Cedeno tied the score. After an intentional pass to Bob Watson, a double by Cliff Johnson and singles by Greg Gross and Larry Milbourne each produced a subsequent run to give the Astros their winning margin.

Pirates 3, Mets 1 at Pittsburgh (night game):
Playing before his hometown fans for the first time, Doc Medich gained his first N. L. victory, pitching the Pirates past the Mets, 3-1. "This was more than a ball game for me," Medich said. "So many of them (the fans at the game) watched me grow up and play baseball around here." The Mets' only run was a homer by John Milner in the fourth inning, but the Pirates promptly came back with two runs in their half on a pass to Willie Stargell, double by Richie Zisk and single by Dave Parker. Another single by Parker and double by Frank Taveras added a run in the seventh.
