. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Stroking three hits and driving in two runs, Von Joshua sparked the Dodgers to a 7-4 victory over the Mets. The Mets led, 3-1, in the sixth, but singles by Bill Russell, Steve Garvey and Joshua made it 3-2.

In the seventh, Russell and Reggie Smith doubled with one out, Garvey was intentionally walked, Ron Cey delivered one run with a single to tie the score and Joshua followed with an RBI on a ground-rule double to put the Dodgers ahead. [The Sporting News]
