. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Doling out three hits, Andy Messersmith shut out the Phillies, 4-0, behind a nine-hit Dodger attack which included a two-run homer by batterymate Steve Yeager which broke a scoreless tie in the fourth. L.A. scored their final two runs in the sixth without getting the ball out of the infield. The Dodgers loaded the bases on a hit batsman, walk and fielder's choice. Davey Lopes followed with an infield single and Bill Buckner plated the the fourth run with an infield out. Messersmith held the Phillies hitless until Dave Cash tripled to right with one out in the sixth. [The Sporting News]
