. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Tom Seaver, getting relief help from Doug Bair, got credit for his sixth straight victory as the Reds downed the Cardinals, 4-2. The Reds scored twice in the first inning. Dave Collins reached first base when Card shortstop Garry Templeton made a wild throw on a ground ball but was credited with a hit. A double by Joe Morgan moved Collins to third and both runners tallied on a double by George Foster.

Cesar Geronimo clouted a homer in the seventh. Seaver, who left the game after six innings because of a stiff shoulder, struck out eight, boosting his career total to 2,823, passing Cy Young and moving to sixth place on the all-time list. [The Sporting News]
