. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Mike Schmidt, who hit four consecutive homers in the previous day's game, struck out and fouled out twice before hitting for the circuit again to seal the Phillies' 8-5 victory over the Cubs. Schmidt's smash came with a man on base in the seventh inning.

The Cubs also were not silent for homers, accounting for all five of their runs on circuit clouts by Jose Cardenal, Rick Monday and Andre Thornton. Larry Christenson and Bob Boone each batted in two runs with doubles for the Phillies. [The Sporting News]
