Oakland and Cleveland split 2-game set

Game 1:
Cleveland: 7  Oakland: 6
WP - Waits (4-8)  LP - Keough (6-4)
HR - Cleveland: None   Oakland: C Johnson (12)                            

Mike Hargrove had 3 hits and the Indians took advantage
of some sloppy defense by the A's to win a close one
7-6.  5 of the 7 Indians runs were unearned, and the A's
fought back but came up just short. Rickey Henderson had
5 hits for the A's and Cliff Johnson hit his 12th homer.

Game 2:
Oakland: 5  Cleveland: 4
WP - McCatty (8-5)  LP - Monge (1-2)                                                              
HR - Cleveland: None  Oakland: Heath (5)

The A's earned a split of the two-game series with a 5-4 win.
Len Barker started for the Indians and had a wild 6 innings.
He walked 7 batters but whiffed 10.
The Indians trailed by 1 entering the 9th but tied the game on
a Duane Kuiper single.  In the bottom of the inning Tony
Armas came through with the game winning base knock,
bringing home Dwayne Murphy who had 3 hits in the game.
