. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Led by Reggie Jackson, who drove in four runs with a homer and single, the Athletics defeated the Angels, 7-4, before a crowd of 43,041 fans, who were treated to a fireworks show after the holiday game.

The A's, who were the victims of a no-hitter by Clyde Wright in the previous night's game, wasted no time getting at Rudy May when Bert Campaneris led off with the homer in the first inning. Jackson's single accounted for one of the A's two runs in the third. After the Angels came back to tie the score with the aid of two solo swats by Jim Spencer, Jackson broke the deadlock with a three-run homer in the fifth and Sal Bando followed with another round-tripper.
