. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Not content with his pitching, Jim Kaat also took a leading role at bat as the Phillies defeated the Giants, 9-3. Kaat had a double in the third inning for the only hit off John Montefusco before the Phillies erupted for five runs in the seventh, two of them scoring on a single by Kaat. The veteran added a double in the eighth for his third RBI of the game. [The Sporting News]
