. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Lew Krausse pitched a six-hitter and beat his former teammates, 2-1, to give the Brewers a split of a doubleheader with the Athletics, who won the first game, 4-3. Jerry McNertney homered with a man on base in the seventh inning of the lidlifter and Dave May hit for the circuit in the ninth to account for the Brewers' runs. After the Brewers took a 3-2 lead on May's wallop, Don Mincher tied the score in the A's half with his second homer of the game. Rick Monday then walked and stole second, leading to an intentional pass to Frank Fernandez. With two out, John Donaldson singled to drive in the winning run.

Bert Campaneris homered for the Athletics in the first inning of the nightcap, but the Brewers won the game for Krausse with two runs in the fourth on a circuit clout by Tommy Harper, singles by Russ Snyder and May, fly by Bob Burda and grounder by Tito Francona. [The Sporting News]
