. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Backed by a 15-hit attack, Catfish Hunter turned in his fourth complete game of the season and pitched the Athletics to an 11-3 victory over the Yankees. Dave Duncan led the A's with two doubles and two singles. In the eighth inning, when the A's iced the verdict with a six-run outburst, Duncan started the stanza with a double and closed the scoring with an RBI single. [The Sporting News]
