. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Homers by Don Mincher and Tommy Davis helped the Athletics gain a 5-2 victory over the Tigers, who went down to their fifth straight defeat. Davis hit his first homer in an Oakland uniform to tie the score at 1-1 in the sixth. Mincher smashed the deadlock with his circuit clout after a double by Sal Bando in the seventh. Mincher also singled for another RBI when the A's added their final pair in the ninth. [The Sporting News]
