. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Ron Bryant, who spent the early part of the season in the Giants' bullpen, made his fifth start and gained his first victory since May 30 by defeating the Cardinals, 5-2. The lefthander gave up the Cards' runs in the first inning and then breezed until the eighth when Jerry Johnson took over to stifle a Redbird threat. Hal Lanier batted in two runs with a pair of singles for the Giants, who also picked up an unearned marker in going ahead, 3-2. The clinching pair scored in the seventh on a single by Willie McCovey, triple by Ken Henderson and sacrifice fly by Jim Ray Hart. [The Sporting News]
