. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Pitching three scoreless innings in relief, Al Hrabosky gained the victory when the Cardinals pushed over a run in the 10th to defeat the Phillies, 3-2. The Phillies counted their pair off Bob Forsch in the fourth, but the Cardinals came back to tie in the seventh on doubles by Jerry Mumphrey and Ted Simmons around a single by Bake McBride.

In the 10th, Joe Ferguson hustled out a double and gave way to pinch-runner Lee Richard. Mike Anderson sacrificed. Mike Tyson then flied to Greg Luzinski and Richard beat the left fielder's throw to the plate. [The Sporting News]
