. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Ted Savage, hitting a single and double, drove in all of the Brewers' runs in a 3-2 victory over the Angels, who went down to their ninth straight defeat. In the fourth inning, May singled, took second on a passed ball and scored on Savage's single.

The Angels went ahead in the sixth, counting one run on a homer by Jim Fregosi and another on a sacrifice fly by Joe Azcue with the bases loaded. However, the Brewers struck back in the eighth after Dave LaRoche walked Tommy Harper and Bernie Smith. Dave May forced Harper, but Savage followed with his double, driving in the tying and winning runs. [The Sporting News]
