. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The batting of Bert Campaneris and Joe Rudi, together with three hitless innings of winning relief by Mudcat Grant, enabled the Athletics to defeat the White Sox, 8-5. Campaneris homered with a man on base in the third and drove in two more runs with a double in the fourth. Rudi added a two-run homer in the fifth as the A's beat Barry Moore, who made his first start for the White Sox since being obtained from the Indians. [The Sporting News]
