. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Bert Campaneris homered on the first pitch of the game and then hit the tie-breaking double in the 11th inning as the Athletics defeated the Orioles, 4-2. One out after Campy's leadoff homer, Rick Monday also hit for the circuit.

The Orioles pulled even with round-trippers by Clay Dalrymple and Don Buford in the sixth. Dick Green was hit by a pitch in the 11th and scored on Campy's two-bagger. After a sacrifice by Mudcat Grant, Reggie Jackson also doubled to drive in an insurance run. [The Sporting News]
