. . . where the 1970s live forever!

With Blue Moon Odom pitching a four-hitter, the Athletics shut out the Angels, 6-0. Clyde Wright, who started for the Angels, allowed only three hits in seven innings, but the A's used a single by Joe Rudi, two walks, a hit batsman and a sacrifice fly by Dave Duncan for two runs in the fourth. The remaining tallies, three unearned, came off Ken Tatum in the last two frames. [The Sporting News]
