. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Solo homers by Mike Schmidt and Dick Allen, plus three RBIs by Tim McCarver, enabled Steve Carlton to pitch the Phillies to a 5-3 victory over the Giants. In the fourth inning, after swats by Schmidt and Allen, the Phillies added a third run on singles by Jay Johnstone, Garry Maddox and McCarver.

The Giants came back to tie the score with the aid of a two-run homer by Bobby Murcer. However in the sixth, Allen singled, Jerry Martin doubled and McCarver drove them both home with a single for the Phillies' winning margin. [The Sporting News]
