. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A tremendous job of relief pitching by Ron Reed enabled the Phillies to defeat the Reds, 6-1. With the Phillies leading, 4-1, the Reds loaded the bases on Jim Kaat with none out in the sixth inning, but Reed struck out both Tony Perez and Johnny Bench and got Ken Griffey on a fly to quell the threat.

Don Gullett, who was stopped on his personal four-game winning streak, started for the Reds but lasted only three innings. The Phillies, after picking up one run in the first, tacked on three in the second. [The Sporting News]
