Don Hood of Cleveland (4-4) matched his 1977 victory total as he won twice. With relief help from Jim Kern, Hood beat Toronto 4-2; Hood and Mike Paxton then defeated Oakland 6-2 on three hits.

For Toronto (3-4) there were demoralizing losses and impressive triumphs. Five errors in one game and 13 stranded runners in another led to setbacks. But Jesse Jefferson mowed down Chicago 4-0 with a three-hitter. For offense, the Blue Jays relied on Rico Carty (four homers) and ninth-inning hits by Roy Howell, whose two-run homer beat the Royals 3-1, and Willie Upshaw, whose two-run double toppled Kansas City 8-7.
