Today's scores and summaries:

Orioles 3, Mariners 2 at Baltimore (night game):
Extending their winning streak to 12 games, the Orioles captured a 3-2 decision from the Mariners in 11 innings. The score was 1-1 after nine frames when Leon Roberts put the Mariners ahead with a solo homer in the top of the 10th, but the Orioles got the equalizer in their half of the inning on a round-tripper by Eddie Murray with two out. In the bottom of 11th, Pat Kelly walked, stole second and advanced to third on a bunt single by Billy Smith. After Rick Dempsey drew a walk to load the bases, Kiko Garcia hit a grounder that resulted in a forceout at the plate. But Larry Harlow then singled off the glove of first baseman Dan Meyer for the winning run.

Red Sox 5, Angels 0 at Boston (night game):
Rookie Jim Wright pitched a two-hitter and George Scott drove in three runs to pace the Red Sox to a 5-0 whitewashing of the Angels. Scott hit a homer in the second inning, scoring Carlton Fisk, who had doubled. Scott also drove in Fisk in the seventh with a sacrifice fly. Butch Hobson hit a leadoff home run in the eighth. The other Sox tally came in the fourth on a single by Jim Rice and an RBI double by Carl Yastrzemski. Wright retired 16 batters in a row at one point in tossing his second shutout of the campaign.

White Sox 10, Indians 9 at Chicago (night game):
Trailing 9-0 after 2½ innings, the White Sox bounced back to scalp the Indians, 10-9. The comeback began in the third when Greg Pryor walked and scored on a triple by Ralph Garr. After Johnny Grubb dropped a foul fly by Alan Bannister for an error, Bannister walked. RBI singles by Wayne Nordhagen, Lamar Johnson and Bill Nahorodny followed before a wild pitch, a sacrifice fly by Jorge Orta and an error by Tom Veryzer produced two more runs. In the fourth, Garr was safe on Veryzer's second error and, after Henry Cruz walked, Al Fitzmorris relieved starter Sid Monge and walked Chet Lemon to load the bases. Nordhagen singled home two runs and Dennis Kinney came on to be greeted with a single by Johnson and groundout by Orta, each accounting for an RBI.

Brewers 7, Tigers 2 at Detroit (night game):
A pair of two-run homers by Charlie Moore and Ben Oglivie powered the Brewers to their ninth victory in the last 10 games, a 7-2 triumph over the Tigers. Oglivie tripled in the second inning and scored on Sixto Lezcano's single. After two out, Moore unloaded a circuit clout. Oglivie's round-tripper also came with two out in the seventh with Larry Hisle aboard. Mike Caldwell won his fourth straight game and sixth in his last eight decisions.

Royals 5, Rangers 0 at Kansas City (night game):
Rookie Rich Gale yielded just one hit -- a triple by Al Oliver with two out in the seventh inning -- as the Royals downed the Rangers, 5-0. Tom Poquette drove in three runs with a double in the third, a sacrifice fly in the fourth and single in the sixth.

Yankees 5, A's 3 at New York (night game):
A pair of homers by Roy White triggered the Yankees to a 5-3 decision, handing the A's their sixth straight defeat. White tied the score with a solo clout off lefty John Henry Johnson in the third inning and snapped a 2-2 deadlock with a two-run blast off righthander Rick Langford in the fifth. It marked the fifth time in his career that the switch-hitting White had homered from each side of the plate in one game.

[DH] Twins 2, Blue Jays 0 (day game) / Twins 7, Blue Jays 2 at Toronto (night game):
Getting tight pitching and timely hitting, the Twins swept a doubleheader from the Blue Jays, 2-0 and 7-2. In the opener, the Twins got a run in the first inning on a double by Willie Norwood and single by Bob Randall. In the third, Norwood singled, stole second, went to third on a sacrifice by Randall and scored on a single by Dan Ford. The Twins forged a 4-0 lead in the first inning of the second game. Hosken Powell walked, Rod Carew singled and Ford stroked a single for the first run. After Mike Cubbage knocked in Carew with a fielder's choice grounder, Glenn Adams doubled and Butch Wynegar lashed a two-run double to cap the inning. Ford hit a homer in the second after a walk to Carew.

Braves 12, Cardinals 1 at Atlanta (night game):
Preston Hanna belted his first major league home run and yielded only six hits in seven innings of work as the Braves enjoyed a 12-1 romp over the Cardinals. The pitcher's round-tripper came in the fourth frame. The Braves sent 12 batters to the plate in the seventh while scoring seven times. Rod Gilbreath and Rowland Office each drove in two tallies during the big inning.

Reds 1, Cubs 0 at Cincinnati (night game):
An excellent relief job by Doug Bair saved the game as the Reds edged the Cubs, 1-0. The reliever came on in the ninth inning with runners on first and third and one out and struck out Dave Kingman and Manny Trillo on six pitches. The lone run of the contest came in the fourth frame when George Foster led off with a drive to right field that bounced off Gene Clines' glove for a three-base error. Foster remained at third when Dan Driessen grounded out, but after Cesar Geronimo was hit by a pitch, Foster scored on a sacrifice fly by Don Werner.

Astros 2, Pirates 1 at Houston (night game):
A two-out triple by Cesar Cedeno in the eighth inning lifted the Astros to a 2-1 victory over the Pirates. The three-base hit drove in Denny Walling, who had singled with one out. The Pirates scored their run in the first on a double by Frank Taveras, a stolen base and an infield grounder by Phil Garner. In the fifth, Astros' rookie catcher Reggie Baldwin hit his first major league home run to tie the score.

Dodgers 5, Phillies 3 at Los Angeles (night game):
Getting all their runs in the first two innings, the Dodgers posted a 5-3 decision over the Phillies. In the bottom of the first, Davey Lopes led off with a single and moved to third on a pair of groundouts. Ron Cey drew a walk and a single by Dusty Baker plated Lopes. Lee Lacy followed with a three-run homer. Steve Yeager led off the second frame with a round-tripper. The Phils' runs came on solo homers by Mike Schmidt, Richie Hebner and Greg Luzinski.

Mets 3, Padres 2 at San Diego (night game):
A one-out single by Lenny Randle with the bases loaded in the ninth inning gave the Mets a 3-2 triumph over the Padres. Randle's hit drove in Lee Mazzilli and pinch-runner Joel Youngblood. Mazzilli opened the inning with a single and advanced to third when Gene Richards fumbled Tim Foli's single into short left. After Ron Hodges lined out, Ed Kranepool drew an intentional walk to load the bases. Randle then singled on the first pitch by Rollie Fingers. The Padres scored their runs in the sixth on singles by Gene Tenace, Dave Winfield and Oscar Gamble and a sacrifice fly by Bill Almon.

Giants 9, Expos 5 at San Francisco (night game):
Unleashing a 12-hit attack against four pitchers, the Giants beat the Expos, 9-5. Jack Clark drove in four runs with a homer and a double and Darrell Evans added two RBIs with a single and sacrifice fly. Evans' single in the fifth inning put the Giants in front, 4-3, and Clark followed with a two-base hit that made it 5-3. In the seventh, the Giants got four runs on two walks, a double by Johnnie LeMaster, Evans' sacrifice fly and Clark's three-run homer.
