. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Defeated by the Phillies in two previous decisions this season, John Montefusco came back against the Eastern Division leaders and pitched the Giants to a 4-1 victory. The Giants bunched four singles with a walk for three runs in the second inning.

Hits by Bobby Murcer, Ken Reitz and Chris Speier produced the first tally. Then, after Montefusco walked with two out, Larry Herndon singled to drive in two runs. For the first time this season, the Giants' staff had two consecutive complete games -- Ed Halicki's the night before, and Montefusco's. [The Sporting News]
