One run was the difference at Oakland Coliseum as the Houston White Sox
defeated the Atlanta Athletics 3 to 2.
 
Houston won the game with a run in the top of the 9th inning.  After an out
was recorded, Bill Russell slapped a single.  Cliff Johnson was next to the
plate, but was promptly struck out.  Jose Cruz then laced a single.  Cesar
Cedeno followed and he hit a single.  The Atlanta batters went down meekly in
the bottom of the 9th.  
 
Joe Sambito(11-5) went 2 innings allowing no runs for the victory. Phil
Niekro(6-9) was the losing pitcher.  He gave up 10 hits and 4 walks in 8 and
2/3 innings.
