. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Ken McMullen and Jim Fregosi batted in two runs apiece to escort the Angels to a 6-2 victory over the Twins, whose lead in the Western division was cut to five games over the California crew. Harmon Killebrew accounted for the Twins' tallies with a homer in the first inning, but the Angels kayoed Jim Perry in the fourth and took the lead with four runs.

A triple by Roger Repoz, single by Fregosi, walk and single by Jim Spencer produced the first two runs before McMullen batted in two more with a double. Sandy Alomar walked, Fregosi tripled and Alex Johnson singled for the final pair in the fifth. [The Sporting News]
