. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Blue Moon Odom yielded only two hits in his first complete game since coming off the disabled list August 4 and smashed a homer as the Athletics extended their winning streak to six games by beating the Royals, 7-1. Reggie Jackson and Gene Tenace also homered for the A's, while Bill Sorrell accounted for the Royals' run with a circuit clout in the second inning.

Jackson tied the score at 1-1 with a single in the fourth and Odom broke the deadlock with his round-tripper in the fifth. Jackson hit his homer in the sixth and Tenace connected with two men on base in the eighth. [The Sporting News]
