Frank Kelley had three of the 14 hits the Vikings had. Kelley had two doubles and drove in four runs.

Palmer Hall hit his 8th homerun and scored three of his teams runs.

Washington went above .500 at home (12-11) with one game remaining in this series.

Smith had little room for error as New York's starting pitcher Oscar Donnelly shut out Washington on four hits through the first six innings. Washington rallied in the bottom of the seventh inning to tie the game 2-2. Danny Duffie tripled to lead off the inning. Keven Clemens, acquired from Arizona for Garry Dauss, singled him in to tie the game 1-1.

Willie Glendon flied out to center field, Pinch hitter Luke Watkins, a hot batter of late, drew a big two out walk to keep the inning going. Catcher Scott Hamner singled in Clemens with the go ahead run.

Jim Martin's solo homerun (8th) off Smith with two outs in the 8th inning gave New York the lead 3-2.

Clemens and Glendon had successive hits, with Glendon's driving in Wilhelm and Adcock to plate two insurance runs.
