. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Mike Marshall appeared in his 13th straight game and saved the Dodgers' 4-1 victory in the opener of a twi-night doubleheader, but the relief ace was not used in the nightcap which saw the Reds win, 6-0, to end a string of seven straight losses to the L. A. club. The Dodgers began the scoring in the lidlifter with a run in the first inning on a double by Davey Lopes and single by Jim Wynn. Singles by Steve Garvey and Willie Crawford, together with a sacrifice fly by Joe Ferguson, added a run in the fourth before Ron Cey provided the deciding blow by hitting a homer with a man on base in the sixth. Tony Perez homered for the Reds in the seventh to account for their run off Tommy John. In the ninth, after Pete Rose singled and Joe Morgan was safe on an error by Lopes, Marshall relieved with one out and saved John's 12th victory by striking out Johnny Bench and getting Perez to ground into a forceout at second base.

Don Gullett pitched the shutout for the Reds in nightcap, allowing only four hits. The Reds had homers by Rose and Morgan. The largest crowd ever to watch the Dodgers play in Cincinnati, 51,909, turned out for the doubleheader. [The Sporting News]
