American League
  • CHW 3 @ BAL 4
    A 20-inning marathon that featured outstanding work by both starters and a yeoman's effort by O's Marcelino Lopez and Chisox' Wilbur Wood in relief.

    Inning #20 began with a shocking home run by Chicago reliever Danny Murphy who in turn surrendered home runs to Merv Rettenmund and a game-winner to Brooks Robinson in the bottom of the frame.
  • NYY 5 @ CAL 4
    New York's Jerry Kenney pushed the Bombers ahead with a RBI single in the 10th after Jim Spencer's two-run double tied the game in the ninth.
National League
  • CIN 1 @ CHC 7
    Before shipping out for military leave, Chicago's Ken Holtzman shuts down baseball's leading offense with a 7-1 victory. Glenn Beckert and Ernie Banks homered in support of the southpaw.
  • STL 10 @ ATL 11
    Hal King drew a bases-loaded walk in the 11th to end a crazy affair between the Redbirds and Braves.
