. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Making his first start of the season, Wayne Twitchell gained his first victory when the Phillies beat the Mets, 2-0, to complete the sweep of a doubleheader after winning the first game, 7-6, in 11 innings. Greg Luzinski hit a grand-slam homer in the fifth inning of the opener to put the Phillies ahead, 6-4, but the Mets picked up a run in the seventh and tied the score in the ninth on a single by Mike Vail, stolen base by pinch-runner Leon Brown and a single by John Milner. In the 11th, with two out for the Phillies, Jay Johnstone singled and, on a run-and-hit play, scored the deciding run from first base when Garry Maddox singled.

In the nightcap, Twitchell came out the winner, with help from Ron Schueler in the last two innings, when Larry Bowa beat out a bunt in the sixth and Mike Schmidt smashed a homer. [The Sporting News]
