1977 - April 27, TORONTO 5 @ CLEVELAND 19

Buddy Bell slammed 2 homeruns and Wayne Garland was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete game as the Cleveland Indians crushed the slumping Toronto Blue Jays 19 to 5. Bell provided much of the offense. He doubled knocking in a run in the 1st inning, lofted a solo-blast 'downtown' in the 3rd inning, caught a hold of a fastball for a Grand Slam homerun (his 4th of the season) in the 4th inning and lined a single in the 6th inning. Cleveland kept the score keepers busy in the 2nd inning with 4 runs, the 4th inning with 4 runs on 4 hits and the 7th inning when they had 4 runs on 3 hits. The Cleveland offense poured it on, scoring in 7 of the 9 innings.

The victory went to Garland(1-2) who went the distance allowing 5 runs. The losing pitcher was Steve Hargan(0-3). He was touched for 8 hits and 3 walks in 3 and 1/3 innings.
