. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Al Kaline collected the 2,500th hit of his major league career and Willie Horton drove in his 500th run, but the Athletics scored four unearned runs after two were out in the sixth inning to defeat the Tigers, 4-2. Kaline singled for his milestone hit in the fifth inning, took second on a single by Norm Cash and scored when Horton singled.

Bert Campaneris singled with two away in the A's sixth and scored when Earl Wilson threw wildly on a smash to the mound by Felipe Alou. A single by Joe Rudi plated Alou to tie the game at 2-2. After Sal Bando walked, Don Mincher and Frank Fernandez followed with run-scoring singles. [The Sporting News]
