. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The relief work of Paul Lindblad, who struck out two batters with two men on base in the ninth inning, saved the Athletics' 4-0 victory over the Senators. Diego Segui, who pitched a six-hitter, was lifted after Jim French walked and Ed Brinkman doubled with one away in the final frame.

Lindblad then fanned Tom Grieve and Rick Reichardt. The A's started the scoring with two runs in the fourth on a single by Rick Monday, triple by Sal Bando and sacrifice fly by Don Mincher. Reggie Jackson homered in the fifth. [The Sporting News]
