. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Phillies were to have started their twi-night doubleheader with the Expos at 5:35 p.m., but after three rain delays that lasted four hours, 56 minutes, it was 3:13 a.m. before the Phillies completed the sweep with a pair of 6-1 victories. The start of the first game was held up for 63 minutes and again for two hours, 27 minutes in the third inning. The second game was delayed for one hour, 26 minutes in the second inning. Larry Christenson pitched a two-hitter for the Phillies in the opener. After the Expos scored in the first inning on a walk, two infield outs and a single by Tony Perez, the Phillies erupted for four runs in the fourth and iced their decision when Ted Sizemore singled and Bake McBride homered in the sixth.

In the nightcap, Jim Lonborg and Ron Reed combined on a four-hitter, while Greg Luzinski batted in four runs with a pair of homers. Bob Boone also hit for the circuit and singled to produce the two other tallies for the Phillies. Del Unser accounted for the Expos' lone run with a homer in the eighth inning. [The Sporting News]
