. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Angels rallied for five runs on two homers in the sixth inning and defeated the Royals, 7-5, for their the fifth straight victory. With the help of a circuit clout by Jim Campanis, the Royals held a 5-2 lead going into the sixth. Jay Johnstone opened the Angels' rally with a single and Roger Repoz followed with a round-tripper. Aurelio Rodriguez and Rick Reichardt then singled and Jim Fregosi capped the Angels' comeback with the winning homer. [The Sporting News]
