NL – May 21

LA defensive replacement Teddy Martinez atoned for his throwing error—which led to a game-tying run—with a two-out, 2-run home run in the bottom half of the ninth, sending the Dodgers to a 7-5 win over the Giants…San Diego completed a 4-game sweep of the punchless Reds with a 2-0, 2-1 doubleheader sweep at Riverfront. Jerry Turner hit his 8th homer for the Padres in the first game, and Gene Tenace clubbed a 2-run shot in the nightcap…The Cubs beat the Cards 5-3 at Wrigley, despite three errors by third baseman Rodney Scott. Dennis Lamp (5-2) pitched eight innings for the win…Houston’s 3-run eighth inning ended a scoreless duel, and Joe Sambito defused a ninth inning Braves rally to preserve an Astros 3-0 win. Darrel Chaney went 2-for-5 at the plate, maintaining his .408 average…Solo homers by Ellis Valentine and Warren Cromartie powered Montreal to a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh. Expos starter Steve Rogers improved his record to 5-4…The lowly Mets shocked the Phils for the second straight day with a convincing 5-3 win at New York. Mets outfielder Steve Henderson added a pair of triples to his team’s 10-hit attack…

AL – May 21

Baltimore took two from Cleveland at Municipal Stadium. Doug DeCinces hit his 6th and 7th HR’s and had four RBI in Baltimore’s first-game win, and Eddie Murray hit two of his own in the second game, a wild 20-16 Orioles win that set SP78 records for total runs and total hits collected in a game. Indians second baseman Duane Kuiper went 5-for-5 in the second game, good for five RBI…Oakland and Chicago split their doubleheader, 7-1 White Sox in Game 1 and 2-1 A’s in Game 2…In the makeup game of a May 20th rainout, the Brewers blanked the Angels behind the 11-strikeout performance of Moose Haas. In the regularly scheduled contest, Milwaukee survived a ninth inning bases-loaded scare and nipped California 2-1 to complete the sweep. Bill Travers (2-5) picked up the win, while Nolan Ryan (3-4) suffered the loss…In a doubleheader at Exhibition Stadium, the Jays took the first game 10-8, thanks in part to a 6-run second inning; in the second game, Blue Jays DH Willie Horton’s home run in the ninth knotted the score at 2-2, but the Yankees erupted for three runs in the tenth to gain the split. The Yankees lead in the East remains at five games…Texas topped Seattle 6-2 and dropped the M’s a half-game behind the front-running Twins. Bump Wills led Rangers batters with two singles and two doubles…A ‘Phil Mankowski Day’ crowd at Tiger Stadium saw Detroit and Boston split their twinbill, with Mankowski collecting a single in each game. The Tigers third baseman was playing for the first time since spending 30 days on the disabled list. A three-run eighth inning gave the Tigers the win in the opener, while Jim Rice won Game 2 for the Bosox with a ninth inning HR, his fourth of the year…The rampaging Twins clipped the Royals 3-1, becoming the first team in the majors to win 30 games…
