Larry Christenson didn't allow a hit until the 6th inning at Oakland Coliseum
as the Philadelphia Indians beat the reeling Atlanta Athletics 2 to
1.
 
Christenson(9-6) put on a good performance.  He allowed only 3 hits and 2
walks in 8 innings lowering his ERA to 4.67.  The right-handed Christenson
lost his no-hit bid when Jeff Burroughs singled with two outs in the 6th
inning.  Gene Garber pitched a perfect ninth and was credited with his 16th
save.  
 
The loss was charged to Dick Ruthven(3-5).  He gave up 2 runs and 6 hits in 8
innings.
