. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Tom Seaver yielded only two hits in the first six innings before being kayoed in the seventh when the Dodgers erupted for five runs en route to a 7-1 victory over the Mets. Seaver and Andy Messersmith were engaged in a scoreless duel until Jim Wynn tripled in the seventh and scored on a single by Steve Garvey. Singles by Willie Crawford and Ron Cey added another run. After an intentional pass to Davey Lopes, Messersmith walked to force in Crawford.

Seaver left in favor of Bob Miller, who yielded a two-run single by Bill Buckner before ending the inning. Messersmith batted in a run with a single in the eighth and Garvey homered in the ninth before the Mets picked up their lone tally off Messersmith on a double by Rusty Staub and single by John Milner.
