. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Posting their fifth straight victory, the Cubs downed the Braves, 7-3. The Cubs got a run-scoring single by Dave Kingman in the first inning and another by Scot Thompson in the second. With two out in the third, Steve Ontiveros was hit by a pitch and Barry Foote followed with a homer. Ivan DeJesus drilled a round-tripper in the fourth and Foote added his second circuit clout of the game in the eighth. [The Sporting News]
