. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Edging the Phillies, 2-1, the Giants extended their winning streak to five games. Both Frisco tallies came in the first inning. Singles by Terry Whitfield and Rob Andrews opened the frame and, after two outs, a single by Mike Ivie scored Whitfield. Andrews scored when second baseman Jim Morrison dropped Larry Herndon's pop-up.

Larry Christenson retired the next 20 batters before Vida Blue singled in the eighth. Pinch-hitter Davey Johnson led off the Phils' ninth with a double and scored on a single by Jerry Martin. After a sacrifice moved Martin to second, Randy Moffitt relieved Blue and struck out Mike Schmidt and Greg Luzinski on seven pitches. [The Sporting News]
