. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Preston Hanna belted his first major league home run and yielded only six hits in seven innings of work as the Braves enjoyed a 12-1 romp over the Cardinals. The pitcher's round-tripper came in the fourth frame. The Braves sent 12 batters to the plate in the seventh while scoring seven times. Rod Gilbreath and Rowland Office each drove in two tallies during the big inning. [The Sporting News]
