. . . where the 1970s live forever!

In an outstanding show by Joe Morgan, the Reds' second baseman drove in two runs, scored two and stole three bases to account for a 4-1 victory over the Phillies. Singles by Larry Bowa, Mike Schmidt and Ollie Brown gave the Phillies their lone run off Fred Norman in the first inning. The Reds came back with the tying tally in their half on a double by Pete Rose, an infield out and sacrifice fly by Morgan, who then tripled in the third and counted the go-ahead run on a single by George Foster.

Morgan and Johnny Bench worked a double steal in the fifth and when catcher Bob Boone threw to second, trying to nail Bench, Morgan caught the Phillies off guard and continued home. A double by Rose and singles by Ken Griffey and Morgan added the final tally in the seventh. Morgan's two RBIs raised his season total to 94, equalling his career high, while his three stolen bases were his 45th, 46th and 47th. [The Sporting News]
