. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Mike Marshall set a major league record for most consecutive appearances, pitching in his 10th straight game, as the Dodgers defeated the Giants, 6-4. However, Iron Mike had his troubles after relieving Doug Rau and the Dodgers had to use three more pitchers in the ninth before stopping the Giants. The Dodgers built up a 5-0 lead with the aid of a two-run single by Bill Russell before the Giants picked up their first run on a homer by Dave Kingman in the fifth. When the Giants threatened with one out in the sixth, Marshall replaced Rau. Kingman drove in two runs with a single in the eighth.

Marshall's weariness became apparent in the ninth when the Giants loaded the bases with none out. Jim Brewer came in and struck out Chris Speier. Geoff Zahn took over and walked Gary Thomasson to force in a run before striking out Ed Goodson. Charlie Hough then became the Dodgers' third reliever of the inning and retired Gary Matthews on a grounder for the final out. [The Sporting News]
