. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A homer by Dave Duncan with one out in the ninth inning deprived Jim Palmer of what would have been his third straight shutout when the Orioles' righthander defeated the Indians, 4-1. Palmer allowed only two other hits. The Orioles' attack included a two-run double by Rich Coggins. [The Sporting News]
