. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Four walks in the ninth inning handed the Athletics a 3-2 victory over the Angels. Gene Tenace, pinch-hitting with two out and the bases loaded, drew a pass that forced in Blue Moon Odom, who ran for Don Mincher. Chuck Dobson, who was the winner, gave up only three hits, all by Tony Gonzalez. Joe Rudi homered for the Athletics. [The Sporting News]
