. . . where the 1970s live forever!

An error by Mike Schmidt, his second of the game, enabled the Dodgers to cap a three-run rally in the seventh inning and defeat the Phillies, 6-5. Steve Yeager drew a walk to open the stanza and scored on a pinch-double by Lee Lacy, knocking out Jim Kaat.

Davey Lopes greeted Ron Reed with a single, driving in Lacy. Ron Cey then grounded to Schmidt and when the third baseman threw wildly, Lopes counted what proved to be the Dodgers' winning run. [The Sporting News]
