. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Senators jumped on Mel Stottlemyre for four runs in the first inning and gained a 7-3 victory, handing the Yankees their eighth defeat in the last 11 games. Ed Brinkman doubled and Frank Howard singled to start the Nats' attack. After Rick Reichardt was hit by a pitch, Bernie Allen singled to plate Howard. A pass to Aurelio Rodriguez loaded the bases and Del Unser followed with a two-run single. Stottlemyre was charged with another run in the second before departing.

Paul Casanova homered in the fifth and Brinkman's fourth hit of the game set up the Senators' final markers in the eighth. Ron Hansen hit a two-run homer for the Yankees. [The Sporting News]
