. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Although tagged for two homers, Tom Hall gave up no other hits in 7 2/3 innings of pitching and received credit for the Twins' 7-4 victory over the Athletics. Bert Campaneris connected for a solo shot off Hall in the seventh inning. Then, in the eighth, the 22-year-old southpaw walked two batters and served up a homer by Dave Duncan before yielding the mound to Bill Zepp.

The Twins scored two runs on a bases-loaded double by Jim Holt in the first, added three on a homer by George Mitterwald in the third and picked up their final pair on a single by Rich Reese in the seventh. [The Sporting News]
