. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A double steal produced the tie-breaking run as the Brewers defeated the Royals, 4-2. Ed Kirkpatrick hit two homers to account for the Royals' runs. The Brewers, who picked up a run in the third inning on singles by Ted Kubiak and Bob Burda, around an infield out, tied the score in the seventh when Roberto Pena doubled, Gus Gil walked and Dave May singled. Gil took third on May's hit and then stole home when the Royals mishandled the play on May's theft of second. May doubled to drive in Phil Roof with an insurance run in the ninth inning.
