. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Bidding for his third straight homer title, Mike Schmidt smashed his 38th of the season, one more than Dave Kingman of the Mets, to help the Phillies edge the Cardinals, 6-5. Schmidt's blow came with a man on base in the fifth inning when the Phillies counted three times to take a 5-1 lead. The Cardinals rallied to tie the score, but the Phillies came back with the deciding run in the eighth on a walk to Bob Boone and double by Jerry Martin, driving in pinch-runner Rick Bosetti.
