. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After failing to hurl the route in two previous starts, although winning one game, Blue Moon Odom lasted the distance and pitched the Athletics to a 3-1 victory over the White Sox. Buddy Bradford accounted for the run off Odom with a homer in the fifth inning. Rick Monday collected two doubles and a single for the A's and Felipe Alou joined in the attack with three singles.
