. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Dodgers, who got two-hit pitching from Rick Rhoden, scored an unearned run off luckless Fred Norman and defeated the Reds, 1-0. Davey Lopes drew a walk in the third inning and was caught off base on a pickoff attempt by Norman, but the Dodger runner escaped the trap and reached second safely when Pete Rose, covering the bag on the play, dropped a throw from Joe Morgan. Bill Russell then sacrificed and Reggie Smith followed with a single to hand Norman his seventh straight defeat. [The Sporting News]
