In a close game it was the Kansas City Expos 6, the St. Louis Twins 4 at Busch
Stadium.
 
The game started off with Kansas City taking the lead in the first when they
tallied 2 runs on 2 hits.  The crucial at-bat was provided by Gary Carter who
quieted the crowd when he smashed a two-run homer.  St. Louis out-hit Kansas
City 12 to 9, but Kansas City ended up with more runs.  
 
Doug Bird(1-1) got credit for the victory, pitching 5 innings and allowing 1
run. Bird got relief help from Bill Atkinson who gained credit for his 6th
save.  Bob Forsch(1-3) was the loser.
