. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Dave McNally entered a charmed circle by pitching the Orioles to a 5-0 victory over the Yankees and became the first A. L. hurler to win 20 or more games for each of four consecutive seasons since Red Ruffing accomplished the feat with the Yankees from 1936 through '39.

Paul Blair and Boog Powell hit homers for the Orioles, who iced their victory with three runs in the ninth inning. Andy Etchebarren drove in two with a bases-loaded single and Davey Johnson stole home for the final tally. [The Sporting News]
