. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Mets scored four unearned runs in the 10th inning and beat the Expos, 9-5, to move into a virtual tie with the idle Pirates for first place in the East division. The Pirates were ahead by four-tenths of one percentage point, .5310 to .5306.

The Expos took the lead in the second inning when Clyde Mashore homered with a man on base for his first major league hit. A single by Mashore sparked the scoring of two more runs in the fourth. The Mets exploded for five runs in the fifth on three walks, three hits and sacrifice fly, but the Expos tied the score in their half with a walk, a double by Cleon Jones and a sacrifice fly by Bobby Wine.

In the tenth, Jerry Grote singled and gave way to Rod Gaspar, who stole second. Bud Harrelson was safe on an error by Ron Fairly. Gaspar was trapped between third and home on a grounder by Tommie Agee, but scored when John Bateman threw wildly in the rundown. A double by Wayne Garrett, sacrifice fly by Ron Swoboda and single by Donn Clendenon added three runs to nail down the victory. [The Sporting News]
