. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Two-run homers by Jim Gosger and John Bateman powered the Expos to a 4-3 victory over the Phillies. The crowd of 25,221 boosted the Expos' attendance to 1,232,476, exceeding their 1969 total in the expansion club's first season. The Phillies also had a two-run homer by Johnny Briggs. Their third run scored when Deron Johnson walked with the bases loaded in the eighth inning after Howie Reed replaced Steve Renko. Reed then saved the game. [The Sporting News]
