. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Capitalizing on Lynn McGlothen's loss of control, the Phillies defeated the Cardinals, 5-2, in a game stopped by rain after eight innings. Rain forced a delay of one hour, 33 minutes in the second before Hector Cruz accounted for the Cards' runs with a homer.

Ollie Brown hit for the circuit to open the Phillies' fifth. McGlothen then walked Tim McCarver, Larry Bowa and Dave Cash to load the bases before Garry Maddox singled to drive in two runs. Bill Greif relieved and was tagged for a single by Greg Luzinski, driving in the Phils' fourth run of the inning. [The Sporting News]
