. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A three-run homer by Dick Davis in the third inning triggered the Brewers to a 5-3 decision over the Blue Jays. The Brewers were behind, 2-0, in the third, when Paul Molitor doubled and Sal Bando walked to set the stage for Davis' round-tripper. Sixto Lezcano belted a homer for the deciding run in the sixth and Molitor added an insurance marker with a single in the seventh. [The Sporting News]
