Tim McCarver had 2 base hits and 2 RBI at Busch Stadium where the Philadelphia
Indians beat the struggling St. Louis Twins in 10 innings 6 to 5.
 
The score was knotted at 5 after nine innings.  Philadelphia won it in the
10th inning.  Greg Luzinski slapped a one-base hit.  Norris took second on a
stolen base.  Garry Maddox struck out, unable to help the rally.  McCarver
stepped in and he lined a single.  Duane Kuiper came up to bat and laced a
base-hit.  A wild affair, this game saw the lead change 5 times.  
 
The winning pitcher was Gene Garber(1-0) who allowed no runs in 2 innings.
Eric Rasmussen(0-3) took the loss.  He was unable to control the Philadelphia
offense and allowed 12 hits and 3 walks in 9 and 1/3 innings.
