Today's scores and summaries:

Angels 7, Orioles 3 at Baltimore (night game):
Frank Tanana brought the Angels' five-game losing streak to an end by defeating the Orioles, 7-3. Tommy Davis, Bruce Bochte and Dave Chalk drove in two runs apiece for the Angels, while Lee May homered with a man on base for the Orioles.

Brewers 9, White Sox 2 at Chicago (night game):
Sixto Lezcano, Mike Hegan and Robin Yount knocked in seven runs among them to lead the Brewers to a 9-2 victory over the White Sox. Hegan had three RBIs on a homer with a man on base and a sacrifice fly. Lezcano and Yount batted in two runs apiece. Jorge Orta hit his 11th homer of the season for the White Sox, equalling his major league season high and extending his batting streak to 14 games.

A's 3, Tigers 0 at Detroit (night game):
Mike Norris, who worked until the start of the eighth inning, and Rollie Fingers, who finished, combined to pitch the Athletics to a 3-0 victory over the Tigers. The A's, who had been held scoreless for 21 innings, snapped their drouth with an unearned run on a wild throw by catcher Bruce Kimm in the first. Another wild throw by Kimm resulted in a second unearned run in the fifth before Gene Tenace completed the scoring with a homer in the ninth.

Royals 2, Red Sox 1 at Kansas City (day game):
Although leading majors in batting, George Brett does not consider himself to be a slugger, but the time was appropriate in the ninth inning and the Royals' All-Star third baseman smashed a homer to beat the Red Sox, 2-1. A single by Amos Otis and double by John Mayberry gave the Royals their initial run in the fourth before the Red Sox tied the score in the sixth on two walks and a single by Rick Burleson.

Indians 4, Twins 0 at Minnesota (night game):
With the assistance of three double plays, Rick Waits turned in his first complete game and first shutout of the season, pitching the Indians to a 4-0 victory over the Twins. The Tribe's lefthander gave up four hits and walked four while striking out eight. Frank Duffy led the Indians at bat with three hits.

Yankees 7, Rangers 5 at Texas (night game):
In a game that contrasted individual success and team failure, Dock Ellis gained his seventh straight victory as the Yankees sent the Rangers down to their 10th defeat in a row, 7-5. Graig Nettles hit a homer, double and single, driving in three runs for the Yankees, while Thurman Munson accounted for two RBIs with a pair of singles. Ellis was lifted in the seventh inning. Dick Tidrow, the second of two Yankee relievers, gave up four runs in the ninth, three on a homer by Mike Hargrove, before ending the game.

Reds 4, Expos 1 at Cincinnati (night game):
Two successive homers in the first inning, accounting for four runs, powered the Reds to a 4-1 victory over the Expos. After Pete Rose and Ken Griffey led off with singles, Joe Morgan hit for the circuit and George Foster followed with another round-tripper to provide Snato Alcala with more than enough runs to win. Andre Thornton homered in the second for the Expos' only marker.

Dodgers 5, Cubs 4 at Los Angeles (day game):
Walter Alston chalked up his 2,000th victory as manager of the Dodgers and unbeaten Rick Rhoden extended his personal winning streak to nine games by defeating the Cubs, 5-4. Rhoden got off to a shaky start, giving up all of the Cubs' runs in the first inning, but allowed only three singles the rest of the way. Rhoden helped overcome his handicap by rapping two singles, scoring one run and driving in two. In the fourth, with the Dodgers trailing, 4-3, Rhoden singled with the bases loaded, accounting for the tying and winning run.

Astros 1, Mets 0 at New York (night game):
A homer by Cesar Cedeno in the first inning accounted for the game's only run as the Astros defeated the Mets, 1-0, in a pitching duel between Joaquin Andujar and Tom Seaver.

Braves 10, Pirates 2 at Pittsburgh (day game):
Starting with a three-run homer by Ken Henderson in the first inning, the Braves proceeded to pound the Pirates, 10-2. Willie Montanez scored three times for the Braves after reaching base with a double and two singles.

Cardinals 7, Padres 1 at San Diego (day game):
John Denny became the only Cardinal pitcher over .500 when the righthander brought his record to 5-4 by defeating the Padres, 7-1. The loss was the Padres' seventh in a row, while Dave Freisleben was tagged with his fifth straight setback. Keith Hernandez, who has been used infrequently by the Cards, led their attack with a double and two singles, driving in three runs.

Giants 4, Phillies 1 at San Francisco (day game):
Defeated by the Phillies in two previous decisions this season, John Montefusco came back against the Eastern Division leaders and pitched the Giants to a 4-1 victory. The Giants bunched four singles with a walk for three runs in the second inning. Hits by Bobby Murcer, Ken Reitz and Chris Speier produced the first tally. Then, after Montefusco walked with two out, Larry Herndon singled to drive in two runs. For the first time this season, the Giants' staff had two consecutive complete games -- Ed Halicki's the night before, and Montefusco's.
