. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Don Mincher, who hit a sacrifice fly in the third inning when the Athletics took a 3-1 lead, homered with a man on base in the seventh inning to enable the A's to stand off the Indians, 5-4. After Mincher's blast, the Indians rallied for two runs on a double by Tony Horton in the eighth and added an unearned run in the ninth before Mudcat Grant finished saving the game.
