. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Mike Schmidt hit his 10th and 11th home runs in April, tying the major league record shared by Willie Stargell of the Pirates and Graig Nettles of the Yankees when the Phillies outslugged the Reds, 10-9. The winning run scored when Dave Cash singled in the eighth, advanced on an error, reached third on Larry Bowa's sacrifice and scored on a passed ball by Johnny Bench, his first since 1974.
