. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Chuck Dobson yielded only three hits and breezed to an 11-3 victory over the Angels with the support of four homers by the Athletics. Felipe Alou, Dave Duncan and Dick Green hit for the circuit off Tom Murphy to pace the A's to a 7-0 lead before the Angels picked up a pair on a single by Alex Johnson and a homer by Ken McMullen in the fifth. The other California run in the sixth was unearned. The Athletics piled up their other markers off Dave LaRoche in the eighth with Bert Campaneris clouting a round-tripper to open the stanza.
