. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Breaking up a scoreless duel, Steve Garvey drove in a run with a single in the 13th inning to give the Dodgers a 1-0 victory over the Braves. Davey Lopes, who singled and advanced on successive groundouts, scored on Garvey's hit off Lew Krausse, who was the loser in relief after having been the winner in the previous night's game in his first appearance with the Braves.
