. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After falling behind in the 10th inning, the Royals rallied for two runs in their half on a pinch-single by Hawk Taylor with the bases loaded to defeat the Brewers, 6-5. The Brewers forced the game into overtime by scoring twice in the ninth and took the lead in the 10th when Tommy Harper tripled and Ted Kubiak singled.

With one out in the Royals' half, Joe Keough beat out an infield hit and Luis Alcaraz and Ellie Rodriguez walked to load the bases. When Pat Kelly came to the plate as a pinch-hitter for Moe Drabowsky, the Brewers called on John O'Donoghue to relieve Gene Brabender. Taylor then batted instead of Kelly and rapped O'Donoghue's first pitch for the winning single. [The Sporting News]
