. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Scoring four runs after two were out in the 13th inning, the Giants beat the Expos, 11-7. With the score tied 7-7, Mike Ivie singled and was forced by Jack Clark for second out. Tom Griffin singled and Darrell Evans walked to load the bases.

The tie-breaking run then came across when Terry Whitfield was hit by a pitch. A single by Roger Metzger plated two more tallies and the final marker registered when Expo pitcher Woodie Fryman balked. [The Sporting News]
