Berger provided much of the offense. He bombed a two-run dinger in the 1st inning and lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 11th of the season) in the 3rd inning. Houston rapped out 11 hits for the afternoon.

The winning pitcher was Donovan(3-3) who allowed 2 runs for the game. Catfish Hunter(4-5) was charged with the loss. He served up 4 homeruns in his 6 innings.
