. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Sparked by Alex Johnson's third hit of the game, the Angels broke a tie with two runs in the ninth inning and defeated the Athletics, 4-2. Reggie Jackson homered in the sixth to give the A's a 2-1 lead, but Johnson tied the score with a round-tripper in the seventh. After hitting his single in the ninth, Johnson counted on singles by Jim Spencer and Bill Voss. An infield hit by Doug Griffin added an extra run to clinch the 21st victory for Clyde Wright, who needed relief help from Mel Queen in the A's half. [The Sporting News]
