. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Athletics, who were beneficiaries of two errors in taking a 4-1 lead, settled all doubts by breaking loose for five runs in the eighth inning to defeat the Brewers, 9-1. Singles by Dick Green, Roberto Pena, Dave Duncan and Bert Campaneris accounted for the first two tallies in the eighth before Rick Monday capped the scoring with a three-run homer.
