. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Davey Lopes stole four bases and one of his thefts led to the Dodgers' first run in a 2-1 victory over the Astros. Another stolen base by Bill Russell paved the way for the second run. Lopes became first the Dodger player to steal four bases in one game since Maury Wills in 1962. In the first inning, Lopes singled, swiped second and scored on a single by Russell.

It was Russell's turn in the fifth. After beating out an infield hit, Russell stole second and counted on a single by Jim Wynn. The Astros' run in the first also scored with the aid of a stolen base. Greg Gross opened with a single and was forced by Cesar Cedeno, who pilfered second and crossed the plate on a single by Lee May. [The Sporting News]
