. . . where the 1970s live forever!

When arm trouble forced Craig Swan to leave the mound after three innings, Bob Myrick relieved and received credit for his first major league victory as the Mets defeated the Phillies, 4-1. Myrick was lifted after putting a runner on base in the seventh and Skip Lockwood finished.

The Mets scored twice in the fifth on a single by Roy Staiger, pass to Bud Harrelson, a double steal, infield out and wild pitch. Their other pair followed in the sixth on singles by Bruce Boisclair, John Milner and Joe Torre and a sacrifice fly by Staiger. [The Sporting News]
