. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Jim Perry hurled the route for the Twins and was rewarded with his 17th victory when Jim Holt homered in the 11th inning to beat the Athletics, 2-1. After Bert Campaneris homered for the A's on the first pitch of the game, Perry allowed only four more hits the rest of the way. Rich Reese tied the score for the Twins with a round-tripper in the second. [The Sporting News]
