. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After eight consecutive victories, Jim Lonborg suffered from a bad first inning and absorbed his initial defeat of the season when the Giants beat the Phillies, 5-1. In the first, the Giants rapped Lonborg for four runs on six hits, starting with a double by Larry Herndon.

A sacrifice bunt by Derrel Thomas and sacrifice fly by Bobby Murcer scored Herndon. Gary Matthews, Willie Montanez and Chris Speier singled to make it 2-0 and, after Ken Reitz beat out an infield hit, Dave Rader doubled to drive in Montanez and Speier. [The Sporting News]
