. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Brewers pinned a 6-4 defeat on the Tigers and relief ace John Hiller when Dave May doubled home two runs in the eighth inning after Milwaukee loaded the bases on two walks, an infield out and Tim Johnson's single. John Vukovich doubled home the first two Milwaukee runs in the second. The Tigers got one back in the third on Al Kaline's RBI single, scored three more in the fifth on singles by Mickey Stanley and Gary Sutherland, Vukovich's error, a sacrifice fly and Willie Horton's single.

The Brewers used an unearned run to tie the score in the seventh. Pedro Garcia and Vukovich opened with singles and May's grounder went through Sutherland's legs for an error, Garcia scoring. Johnson, running for Vukovich, took third on the play and scored later on Don Money's sacrifice fly. Ed Sprague, making only his third start since 1971, went eight innings to pick up the victory.
