. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A two-run double by Bill Russell in the seventh inning snapped a 3-3 tie to give the Dodgers a 5-3 decision over the Mets. Steve Yeager walked with one out in the seventh and reached second on Tommy John's sacrifice-fielder's choice. Davey Lopes hit a single, but Yeager was thrown out at the plate. Russell then delivered his two-base hit, plating John and Lopes. The Dodgers had tied the score in the sixth on a solo home run by Steve Garvey, his second of the game. [The Sporting News]
