. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After being shut out by Rick Reuschel in the first game, 4-0, the Phillies came back to beat the Cubs in the second game of a doubleheader, 8-5, with the aid of a grand-slam homer by Garry Maddox. Reuschel scattered nine hits and had the backing of homers by Wayne Tyrone and Jerry Morales. Tyrone's circuit clout was the first of his major league career.

In the nightcap, the Phillies erupted for four runs in the first inning and added their other four in the fourth when Tim McCarver and Larry Bowa singled, Dave Cash walked and Maddox hit his jackpot wallop. [The Sporting News]
