. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Consecutive homers by Joe Ferguson and Ron Cey in the 11th inning, Ferguson's blow coming with a man on base, carried the Dodgers to an 8-6 victory over the Reds. The Dodgers' scoring earlier in the game included Steve Yeager's first major league homer. Ferguson and Cey climaxed four-hit nights with their circuit clouts to break a 5-5 tie. The Reds scored one run in their half of the 11th on a double by Joe Morgan. [The Sporting News]
