Oscar Gamble launched 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI as the Houston White Sox
defeated the Texas Padres 9 to 4 at Jack Murphy Stadium.
 
Gamble was a seemingly constant irritant to the hometown fans as he provided
much of the offense for the visitors.  He cleared the fences for a two-run
home run in the 1st inning and blasted a solo shot in the 4th inning.
Houston had 14 hits for the game and Texas had 10.  
 
Rick Rhoden(4-1) went 6 and 2/3 innings allowing 4 runs for the victory. Joe
Sambito gained credit for his 1st save.  Bert Blyleven(3-2) was given the
loss.  He was unable to control the Houston offense and allowed 10 hits and 4
walks in 5 innings.
