. . . where the 1970s live forever!

With homers accounting for all but one of the game's total of 10 runs, the Athletics beat the Red Sox, 6-4, for their seventh straight victory. Vicente Romo, who started for Red Sox, suffered his first defeat since August 31, 1969, after winning nine games in a row, six of them this season.

Rico Petrocelli homered for the Red Sox after a walk to Mike Andrews and a single by Reggie Smith in the third inning. Circuit clouts by Don Mincher and Reggie Jackson tied the score in the fourth, Mincher's blow coming with Sal Bando on base, but the Red Sox regained the lead with a swat by Smith in the fifth. The Athletics bounced back in their half when Felipe Alou singled and Bando homered. The last run, in the eighth, counted on a walk to Bando, a sacrifice and a throwing error by Carl Yastrzemski.
