. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After Frank Fernandez homered in the ninth inning to tie the score, Joe Rudi came up as a pinch-hitter with two men on base and also hit for the circuit to give the Athletics a 5-2 victory over the Tigers. A homer by Willie Horton helped the Tigers to a 2-1 lead before Fernandez delivered the A's equalizer. Rick Monday then walked and Dick Green, who bunted, was safe on an error by Al Kaline. Rudi made two unsuccessful attempts to sacrifice before swinging away and hitting his homer. [The Sporting News]
