. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Blue Moon Odom, coming off the disabled list for his first start since June 20, pitched five scoreless innings on a yield of only two hits and gained his first victory since May 24, when the Athletics defeated the Angels, 4-3. Mudcat Grant, who replaced Odom, was tagged for three runs on five consecutive singles in the eighth, but three other relievers stopped any further scoring. The A's counted once in the second inning on a triple by Tommy Davis and infield out by Joe Rudi. Rick Monday drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in the fifth and Felipe Alou followed with a single to plate the deciding tally. [The Sporting News]
