. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Al Downing and Mike Marshall, who divided the pitching duties, yielded only three hits apiece as the Dodgers defeated the Padres, 8-1. Davey Lopes and Willie Crawford hit homers for the Dodgers, holding a 3-0 lead before the Padres settled for one run on an infield out by Dave Winfield after loading the bases in the sixth when Dan Spillner walked and Glenn Beckert and Johnny Grubb singled.

Marshall, making his 71st appearance of the season, took over for Downing in the seventh. In the home half of the seventh, when the Dodgers broke the game apart with five runs, Marshall drove in a pair with a single. Steve Yeager also accounted for two RBIs with a double. [The Sporting News]
