. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Major league home run leader Jim Wynn cracked his 13th and 14th round-trippers to drive in four runs for the Dodgers, who beat the Reds, 5-3. Wynn gave Los Angeles a 3-0 lead in the first when he tagged loser Jack Billingham for a three-run blow after Lee Lacy had doubled and Bill Buckner was hit by a pitch, then connected off Billingham again in the fifth with the bases empty. Joe Morgan accounted for Cincinnati's runs with a two-run homer in the sixth and a single driving in Bill Plummer, who had doubled, in the eighth. Tommy John, with relief help from Mike Marshall in the eighth, won his sixth game against a single loss. [The Sporting News]
