. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Consecutive first-inning homers by Jerry Turner, Dave Winfield and Gene Tenace triggered the Padres to a 7-3 thumping of the Phillies. Turner clouted his round-tripper after a single by Ozzie Smith and then Winfield and Tenace followed with circuit blows.

The Padres added three runs in the third on a walk, a triple by Tenace, a two-base error by Phil second baseman Manny Trillo on a grounder by Jay Johnstone, and a single by Kurt Bevacqua. [The Sporting News]
