Today's scores and summaries:

Orioles 5, Angels 2 at Baltimore (night game):
Jim Palmer notched his sixth straight victory and the Orioles extended their winning streak to 13 games by defeating the Angels, 5-2. A two-run single by Carlos Lopez climaxed a three-run third inning after Ken Singleton drove in a run with an infield groundout. Billy Smith hit a solo home run in the fourth and the Birds' other tally came when Singleton hit into a double play. Lyman Bostock of the Angels extended his hitting streak to 14 games, batting .436 in that stretch, with an RBI single in seventh. The other Angel run resulted from an error.

Red Sox 9, A's 0 at Boston (night game):
Winning their sixth straight game, the Red Sox enjoyed a 9-0 romp over the A's as Luis Tiant tossed a four-hitter. Jim Rice hit his 20th homer of the season in the first inning with a mate aboard and drove in another tally with a single in the second when the Red Sox erupted for six runs, three coming on a homer by Carl Yastrzemski.

White Sox 4, Rangers 1 at Chicago (night game):
Posting their 16th victory in the last 18 games, the White Sox defeated the Rangers, 4-1. Ron Schueler had a no-hitter until Toby Harrah singled with one out in the sixth. John Lowenstein hit an inside-the-park homer in the eighth and when Jim Sundberg got a one-out single, Jim Willoughby relieved and blanked Texas the rest of the way. The White Sox scored a run in the first on an RBI single by Chet Lemon and added two more in the third on a single by Ralph Garr, triple by Alan Bannister and single by Lemon. The final Sox run came in the seventh on a double by Garr and a single by Bannister.

Royals 7, Tigers 1 at Kansas City (night game):
Supporting the four-hit pitching of Paul Splittorff with 10 hits, the Royals downed the Tigers, 7-1. Four runs in the third inning gave Splittorff more than enough to win. Freddie Patek opened the frame with a single and took third on a wild pitch. After Frank White walked, Tom Poquette knocked in the first run with a single, sending White to third. White scored as Hal McRae bounced into a double play. George Brett walked and Amos Otis then hit a home run to complete the scoring in the inning.

Twins 8, Indians 2 at Minnesota (night game):
The Twins handed the Indians their seventh defeat in the last 10 games, 8-2. Two runs came in the first inning on a double by Willie Norwood, single by Rod Carew, an infield out and a single by Jose Morales. The Twins added three more in the third, and Dan Ford slugged a two-run homer to cap a three-run fourth frame. Norwood singled and Carew doubled to open the inning and knock out starter David Clyde. Reliever Al Fitzmorris uncorked a wild pitch to score Norwood before Ford unloaded his homer.

Yankees 11, Mariners 9 at New York (night game):
Rallying for four runs in the 10th inning, the Yankees prevailed over the Mariners, 11-9. Paul Blair hit reliever Enrique Romo's second serve for a three-run homer with two out in the 10th to achieve the victory. The Mariners had taken a 9-7 lead in the top of inning on a solo homer by pinch-hitter Leon Roberts, a pair of singles and a sacrifice fly by Ruppert Jones. The Yanks bounced back to within one run on an RBI single by White off John Montague before Blair delivered the game-winning blast. The Mariners built an early 6-1 lead with the aid of a five-run second inning capped by Craig Reynolds' first major league grand slam. The Yanks tied the score, 7-7, in the eighth on a solo homer by Graig Nettles, a walk to Reggie Jackson and a two-run homer by pinch-hitter Cliff Johnson.

[DH] Brewers 7, Blue Jays 5 (day game) / Brewers 5, Blue Jays 0 at Toronto (night game):
Stretching their winning streak to eight games, the Brewers beat the Blue Jays in both ends of a doubleheader, 7-5 and 5-0. In the opener, the score was 4-4 going into the top of ninth when Jim Gantner drew a one-out walk. A double by Paul Molitor drove in Gantner, and Molitor scored on a single by Dave May. A double by Larry Hisle plated May. In the nightcap, the Brewer attack was led by Jim Wohlford, who singled, doubled and tripled. Wohlford highlighted a three-run third inning when he smacked a two-run triple after a walk to Larry Hisle and double by Sixto Lezcano.

Braves 7, Cardinals 1 at Atlanta (night game):
In a series to determine the worst team in the league, the Braves completed the three-game sweep of the Cardinals, posting a 7-1 victory. Jeff Burroughs led the Braves' attack, driving in a run with a double in the first inning and leading off with a home run in the fourth. Dale Murphy had a solo round-tripper in the fourth. George Hendrick homered for the Cards, who had only one run in each of the three losses.

Reds 3, Cubs 1 at Cincinnati (day game):
A three-run opening inning was all the Reds needed to defeat the Cubs, 3-1. The outburst began with a single by Pete Rose. A double by Ken Griffey and an infield hit by Dave Concepcion produced the first run. After George Foster was given an intentional walk, a single by Dan Driessen plated Griffey. Foster scored on an infield out by Junior Kennedy. Manny Sarmiento, making only his third start of the season, combined with two relievers to hold the Cubs to four hits. Their run counted in the fourth on a pass to Bobby Murcer, single by Larry Biittner and wild pitch by Sarmiento.

Pirates 6, Astros 4 at Houston (night game):
After spotting Houston four runs in the first three innings, the Pirates came back to make the Astros walk the plank, 6-4. The Pirates tied the game, 4-4, in the fifth frame on a leadoff homer by Ed Ott and three-run round-tripper by Dave Parker with two out. In the sixth, a pinch-hit single by Manny Sanguillen put the Pirates ahead, 5-4, and an RBI double by Willie Stargell completed the scoring in the seventh.

Dodgers 5, Mets 3 at Los Angeles (night game):
A two-run double by Bill Russell in the seventh inning snapped a 3-3 tie to give the Dodgers a 5-3 decision over the Mets. Steve Yeager walked with one out in the seventh and reached second on Tommy John's sacrifice-fielder's choice. Davey Lopes hit a single, but Yeager was thrown out at the plate. Russell then delivered his two-base hit, plating John and Lopes. The Dodgers had tied the score in the sixth on a solo home run by Steve Garvey, his second of the game.

[DH] Padres 6, Expos 2 (night game) / Padres 1, Expos 0 at San Diego (night game):
With Gaylord Perry pitching his 48th career shutout, the Padres swept a doubleheader from the Expos, 6-2 and 1-0. In the first game, an 11-hit Padre attack was highlighted by a home run by Dave Winfield and a two-run single by Gene Tenace. The only run of the second game came in the fourth inning when Ozzie Smith and Tenace drew walks to open the frame and Winfield hit a single.

Giants 2, Phillies 1 at San Francisco (day game):
Edging the Phillies, 2-1, the Giants extended their winning streak to five games. Both Frisco tallies came in the first inning. Singles by Terry Whitfield and Rob Andrews opened the frame and, after two outs, a single by Mike Ivie scored Whitfield. Andrews scored when second baseman Jim Morrison dropped Larry Herndon's pop-up. Larry Christenson retired the next 20 batters before Vida Blue singled in the eighth. Pinch-hitter Davey Johnson led off the Phils' ninth with a double and scored on a single by Jerry Martin. After a sacrifice moved Martin to second, Randy Moffitt relieved Blue and struck out Mike Schmidt and Greg Luzinski on seven pitches.
