. . . where the 1970s live forever!

With the support of three homers, Tom Phoebus entered the winning column for the first time since May 9 by pitching the Orioles to a 5-1 victory over the Red Sox. A walk to Mark Belanger, single by Paul Blair, a wild pitch, sacrifice fly by Boog Powell and a double by Brooks Robinson sent the Orioles on their way with two runs in the first inning. Belanger hit his first homer of the season in the second. Frank Robinson and Powell connected in succession in the fifth, marking the 10th time this season that the Orioles had hit consecutive homers. [The Sporting News]
