. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Jim Palmer notched his sixth straight victory and the Orioles extended their winning streak to 13 games by defeating the Angels, 5-2. A two-run single by Carlos Lopez climaxed a three-run third inning after Ken Singleton drove in a run with an infield groundout. Billy Smith hit a solo home run in the fourth and the Birds' other tally came when Singleton hit into a double play.

Lyman Bostock of the Angels extended his hitting streak to 14 games, batting .436 in that stretch, with an RBI single in seventh. The other Angel run resulted from an error. [The Sporting News]
