Milwaukee erupted with the game winning runs in the 9th inning when they came up with 4 runs on 5 hits. The biggest moment was provided by Robin Yount who deflated the crowd as he smashed a two-run homer. The Kansas City bats were silent in the bottom of the 9th.
Pete Ladd(2-1) got credit for the victory, pitching 1 and 1/3 innings and allowing no runs. Ladd got relief help from Bob McClure who gained credit for his 6th save. Dan Quisenberry(1-8) absorbed the loss in relief.
