. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Danny Coombs, who had not pitched a complete game since June 23, when the lefthander lost to the Astros, turned in a route-going performance and hurled the Padres to a 4-2 victory over the Reds. The Padres counted their initial run in the second inning. Ed Spiezio walked, stole second, continued to third on a poor throw by Pat Corrales and crossed the plate on an infield hit by Chris Cannizzaro.

The Reds went ahead with a two-run double by Lee May in the sixth, but the Padres retook the lead with a pair in their half on a single by Steve Huntz, double by Ollie Brown, sacrifice fly by Nate Colbert and single by Ivan Murrell. Doubles by Colbert and Spiezio added an insurance marker in the eighth. [The Sporting News]
