In a good matchup it was the Kansas City Expos 8, the Philadelphia Indians 6
at Olympic Stadium.
 
Kansas City took the lead off Dennis Eckersley in the first inning plating 3
runs on 4 base hits.  Tony Perez led off and started the rally when he
doubled.  George Brett stepped into the batter's box and he ripped a
base-knock.  Al Cowens then reached on an error.  Brett proceeded to steal
third base.  Gary Carter came up to bat and hit a deep fly.  Hal McRae did
his part to keep things going and stroked a single, and an error was also
committed.  Andre Dawson followed next and he delivered a single.
Philadelphia threatened in the 9th but Kansas City was able to put down the
rally.  
 
Steve Rogers(8-6) went 7 and 2/3 innings allowing 4 runs for the victory. Bill
Atkinson recorded the save, his 9th.  Eckersley(5-7) was tagged with the
loss.  Kansas City knocked him around a bit, as he gave up 7 runs in 4
innings.
