. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Making his 34th relief appearance of the season, Mike Marshall drew the defeat when the Cubs erupted for four runs in the seventh to beat the Dodgers, 7-6. Jim Wynn of the Dodgers and Jerry Morales of the Cubs each hit a two-run homer in the first. The Cubs picked up a run off Don Sutton on a pass to Billy Williams with the bases loaded in the fifth. Sutton went out for a pinch-hitter in the sixth when the Dodgers took a 4-3 lead with two runs driven in by Von Joshua.

Marshall relieved, blanked the Cubs in their half of the sixth and retired the first two batters in the seventh before his control deserted him. Morales and Williams walked on eight consecutive pitches. Marshall then worked the count to one ball and two strikes on Jose Cardenal, but on his next delivery Cardenal smashed a three-run homer. Rick Monday followed with a double and scored what proved to be the winning run on a single by Carmen Fanzone before Marshall made his exit. The Dodgers fell short with two runs in a ninth-inning rally on a walk, a triple by Bill Russell and single by Ken McMullen. [The Sporting News]
