. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Pitching a four-hitter, Skip Lockwood gained his first major league victory and snapped the Brewers' five-game losing streak by defeating the Royals, 2-1. The Royals' run counted in the fifth inning on a walk to Ed Kirkpatrick, a wild pitch and a single by Billy Sorrell. Gus Gil batted in the tying run with a sacrifice fly in the Brewers' half and then plated the deciding run with another sacrifice fly in the seventh. [The Sporting News]
