. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Marcel Lachemann pitched 4 2/3 innings of scoreless relief and received credit for his first victory of the season when the Athletics defeated the White Sox, 10-6. The A's, who scored in each of the first six innings, picked up three runs on one hit in the second. Another three-run burst in the sixth featured a homer by Reggie Jackson with a man on base. Carlos May drove in two runs for the White Sox with a circuit clout. [The Sporting News]
