. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Tony LaRussa knocked in two runs with a double in the seventh inning to enable Chuck Dobson to pitch the Athletics to a 2-0 victory over the Angels. Felipe Alou beat out an infield hit and Tito Francona sacrificed before the Angels made the mistake of passing Frank Fernandez intentionally in order to let Rudy May pitch to LaRussa.
