. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Pinch-hitting in the 12th inning, Champ Summers homered with two men on base to give the Cubs a 4-1 victory over the Phillies, who went down to their 13th defeat in the last 15 games. As a result, the Phillies' East Division lead over the Pirates dropped to four games.

Rick Monday accounted for the Cubs' initial run with a homer in the first inning. The Phillies pulled even with an unearned run in the third, scoring with two out on a walk to Mike Schmidt, single by Greg Luzinski and wild throw by Joe Wallis. The deadlock then persisted until the 12th when Manny Trillo and Wallis singled and Summers homered as the pinch-hitter for Bruce Sutter. [The Sporting News]
