. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Blue Moon Odom, who had been plagued by a sore arm, lasted until the seventh inning and received credit for his first victory since April 16 when the Athletics defeated the Senators, 8-1. When Aurelio Rodriguez singled and Bernie Allen walked, Odom yielded the mound to Rollie Fingers.

After Paul Casanova went out on a grounder, Del Unser tapped to third and Rodriguez was caught in rundown but was permitted to score the Senators' lone run on interference by Sal Bando. Don Mincher drove in three runs for the A's with a double and single to help hand the Senators their seventh defeat in a row. [The Sporting News]
