. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Athletics fired a barrage of five homers to shoot down the Orioles, 10-7. Dick Green started the A's bombardment with a three-run homer in the second inning. Reggie Jackson and Frank Fernandez each hit for the circuit with a man on base in the third. Bert Campaneris homered in the fifth and Don Mincher connected in the seventh.

Although knocked out in the sixth, Catfish Hunter received credit for the victory and became the first 10-game winner in the A. L. this season. Don Buford batted in two runs for the Orioles with a homer and Merv Rettenmund accounted for three RBIs with a double and a homer. [The Sporting News]
