. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Posting his third shutout of the season, Jim McAndrew pitched the Mets to a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals. Cleon Jones, hitting safely in his 20th straight game to tie Tommie Agee's club record, tripled in the fourth inning and scored the Mets' first run on a sacrifice fly by Donn Clendenon. The Mets loaded the bases in the eighth and their other tallies followed on a sacrifice fly by Ken Singleton and single by Tim Foli. [The Sporting News]
