. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Piling up nine runs in the last three innings, the Dodgers rolled to an 11-3 victory to spoil the debut of Wes Westrum as manager of the Giants succeeding Charlie Fox. The Giants were ahead, 3-2, going into the seventh when the Dodgers erupted for four runs. Von Joshua knocked in two runs with a bases-loaded single and another run scored on an error by Dave Kingman, one of five by the Giants in the game, before Steve Garvey capped the outburst with a single for the fourth run.

The Dodgers added three more runs in the eighth with the aid of three errors and wound up their scoring in the ninth when Joe Ferguson homered with a man on base. Tommy John gained his 11th victory, pitching six innings before going out for a pinch-hitter, and Mike Marshall finished, appearing in relief for the ninth consecutive game. [The Sporting News]
