. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A three-run rally in the eighth inning, capped by an error, enabled the Athletics to defeat the Senators, 4-3. Paul Casanova hit a double and a homer to pace the Nats to a 3-0 lead before the A's picked up their initial tally in the fifth.

Felipe Alou opened the eighth with a homer and, after Sal Bando walked, Darold Knowles replaced Casey Cox. Joe Rudi doubled, plating Bando with the tying run. Knowles passed Dick Green intentionally and then threw wildly to first on a pickoff attempt, allowing Rudi to race home from second with the A's winning run. [The Sporting News]
