. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Given a defensive lift by Ivan Murrell's spectacular outfield catch, Buzz Capra settled down to hurl the Braves to a 4-3 victory over the Dodgers. After Ron Cey's two-run homer had put L. A. ahead by three in the second, Murrell robbed Jim Wynn of a three-run homer, tumbling into the left field stands after grabbing a long drive. Capra settled down to hurl shutout ball the rest of the way, retiring 16 straight hitters in one stretch.

Loser Doug Rau had a three-hit shutout in the works until the Braves erupted for all their runs in the seventh, the clincher coming when Capra, batting for himself with the score tied and one out, laid down a perfect squeeze bunt to get Craig Robinson home from third. Robinson had singled home the tying run, stolen second and advanced to third on catcher Joe Ferguson's throwing error. [The Sporting News]
