. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Sandy Alomar and Ken McMullen hit singles and Bob Oliver tripled in the third inning when the Angels scored three runs to defeat the Athletics, 4-2. Mickey Rivers started the stanza with a walk, took third on Alomar's single and scored on an infield out by Vada Pinson. Oliver drove in Alomar with his triple and then counted himself on McMullen's single. [The Sporting News]
