. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A two-out triple by Cesar Cedeno in the eighth inning lifted the Astros to a 2-1 victory over the Pirates. The three-base hit drove in Denny Walling, who had singled with one out. The Pirates scored their run in the first on a double by Frank Taveras, a stolen base and an infield grounder by Phil Garner. In the fifth, Astros' rookie catcher Reggie Baldwin hit his first major league home run to tie the score. [The Sporting News]
