. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Dave Morehead yielded only five hits in his first complete game since August 19, 1968, and pitched the Royals to a 7-1 victory over the White Sox. The Royals clinched their verdict with five runs in the eighth inning, the first two scoring on a bases-loaded single by Bob Oliver. After a pass reloaded the sacks, two walks and a wild pitch added three runs. [The Sporting News]
