. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Phillies scored five runs in the first two innings, although collecting only three hits, and defeated the Pirates, 5-2. Cesar Tovar was safe on an error by Dave Cash to open the first. Del Unser singled and Willie Montanez walked. Greg Luzinski singled, driving in Tovar and Unser, and when Manny Sanguillen's throw from the outfield bounced into the Phillies' dugout, Montanez also scored. Luzinski took third on the error and crossed the plate on a grounder by Bob Boone. Unser tripled in the second and scored on an infield out by Montanez. [The Sporting News]
