. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After Mike Schmidt homered in the eighth inning to tie the score, the Phillies pushed over another run in the ninth and defeated the Giants, 3-2. Pinch-hitter Ollie Brown opened the stanza with a single and took third on a single by Garry Maddox. After a walk to Bob Boone and forceout at the plate by Bobby Tolan, Dave Cash hit a long sacrifice fly to plate the winning run. [The Sporting News]
