. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Led by Frank Fernandez, who batted in four runs with a pair of singles, the Athletics defeated the Indians, 6-5. After Fernandez drove in two tallies in the fourth inning, the A's erupted for four runs in the fifth. Singles by Steve Hovley and Bert Campaneris, around a pass to Rick Monday, loaded the bases. An infield out by Tommy Davis plated one run. Following a pass to Don Mincher, Felipe Alou drove in a run with a single. Fernandez then singled to send two men home. [The Sporting News]
