. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Sal Bando, who had been hitless in 24 trips, snapped his slump with a homer for his first RBI since August 18 to propel the Athletics to a 3-1 victory over the Tigers. Catfish Hunter, who pitched a four-hitter, yielded the Tigers' run in the second inning on a double by Bill Freehan and single by Tony Taylor.

The A's tied the score with a walk to Mike Epstein and double by Gene Tenace in their half and Bando then broke the tie with his homer in the fifth. Before the inning ended, the A's added an insurance run on singles by Dal Maxvill and Hunter and a safe squeeze bunt by Bert Campaneris. [The Sporting News]
