. . . where the 1970s live forever!

John Denny became the only Cardinal pitcher over .500 when the righthander brought his record to 5-4 by defeating the Padres, 7-1. The loss was the Padres' seventh in a row, while Dave Freisleben was tagged with his fifth straight setback. Keith Hernandez, who has been used infrequently by the Cards, led their attack with a double and two singles, driving in three runs. [The Sporting News]
