In a close game the Toronto club got by the Kansas City team by the score of 5
to 3.
 
Anthony Bass(1-0) was the winning pitcher in relief.  He allowed 2 hits and no
walks in 1 inning improving his ERA from 5.06 to 4.26.  Kansas City made it
exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.
 
Bass got relief help from Ken Giles who gained credit for his 2nd save. Scott
Barlow(1-1) ended up with the loss in relief.  
 
'Some losses are harder to take than others' Kansas City's manager lamented
after the game.  'This was one of them.'
