Seaver, with last-inning help from Joe Price following a rain delay, defeated Montreal 7-0. Ray Knight of the Reds (4-3) had hits in the ninth to beat the Expos 9-8 and the Phillies 5-4. George Foster had only six hits but drove in 10 runs.
"They don't quit," said Pirate Coach Bob Skinner after the Padres (4-3) overcame a 4-0 deficit and won 5-4. Tim Flannery had a pinch single in the decisive rally that day; earlier he had another single, in the 10th, and scored after singles by Juan Bonilla and Terry Kennedy as San Diego beat the Cubs 5-4.
