. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Erupting for seven runs in the fourth inning, the Dodgers defeated the Expos, 7-5, to snap a three-game losing streak. Ron Cey ignited the Dodgers' outburst with a two-run homer and Jim Wynn capped it with another two-run blow. Andy Messersmith, who pitched his 11th complete game of the season, gave up a run in the first inning and then had a streak of wildness in the sixth when the Expos scored three times on only one hit. Willie Davis smashed a homer for the Expos' final run in the seventh to complete the three-game series against his old club with 10 hits in 15 times at bat. [The Sporting News]
