. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Dave May homered with a man on base and two out in the 10th inning to give the Orioles a 4-2 victory over the Athletics. Frank Robinson opened the stanza with a single and was forced on a bunt attempt by Don Buford. After Mark Belanger flied out, May came through with his circuit clout. [The Sporting News]
