. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A three-run rally at the expense of Mike Marshall in the eighth inning enabled the Pirates to defeat the Dodgers, 4-3. The Dodgers collected all their runs off Jim Rooker in the first on a single by Davey Lopes, pass to Jim Wynn, single by Steve Garvey, sacrifice fly by Joe Ferguson and double by Ron Cey. Richie Zisk started the Pirates' comeback with a homer off Doug Rau in the sixth. Rau was lifted after walking Rennis Stennett to open the eighth.

The Pirates greeted Marshall with singles by Al Oliver and Willie Stargell, Stennett scoring. Zisk followed with a sacrifice fly on which Oliver crossed the plate. Bob Robertson then doubled and Stargell raced home from first base with the deciding run. The Dodgers threatened in the ninth when Rooker gave up two singles, but Dave Giusti relieved with one out and retired the next two batters. [The Sporting News]
