. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Alter wasting five chances to win, the Brewers finally scored a run in the 15th inning and beat the Athletics, 3-2. Sal Bando homered with a man on base in the fourth to produce the A's tallies. The Brewers picked up a marker in their half and tied the score when Russ Snyder hit for the circuit in the fifth. Chuck Dobson, the A's seventh pitcher of the game, took the mound in the 15th and was the loser when Gus Gil doubled, Mike Hershberger walked and Dave May singled to drive in the winning run.
