. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Getting a second chance at the plate when Rich Severson dropped a pop foul, Ted Kubiak singled with the bases loaded and two out in the 13th inning, scoring Ted Savage, to bring the Brewers a 4-3 victory over the Royals. The Brewers stepped out with two runs in the first inning on a homer by Dave May, but Lou Piniella hit a round-tripper for the Royals in the second and the tying run followed in the sixth on a single by Pat Kelly, his theft of second and a single by Ed Kirkpatrick.

Paul Schaal homered for the Royals in 10th, but the Brewers rallied with a run-scoring single by Mike Hegan. In the 13th, May singled and when Savage bunted, both runners were safe on a late throw to second. After a sacrifice, an intentional pass and forceout at the plate, Kubiak got new life on Severson's error and came through with the winning single. [The Sporting News]
