. . . where the 1970s live forever!

With the help of a two-run homer by Ted Savage, the Brewers snapped a five-game losing streak by defeating the Royals, 5-3. The victory was only the second for the Brewers in 11 meetings with the Royals this season. Mike Hegan singled to set up the Brewers' initial run in the first inning, walked ahead of Savage's smash in the third, and doubled to bat in what proved to be the deciding run in the fourth.
