. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After spotting Detroit three runs in the first inning, the Brewers came back to tame the Tigers, 7-4. A two-run homer by Rusty Staub and solo clout by Jason Thompson gave the Tigers their early lead but the Brewers got three runs in the fourth to go ahead to stay.

Consecutive singles by Buck Martinez, Paul Molitor and Don Money produced one run and drove starter Milt Wilcox from the game. Dave May greeted reliever Steve Foucault with a two-run double to make the score 6-4. [The Sporting News]
