Anaheim Angels at San Diego Padres

In this game the Padres wore 1998 uniforms, and the Angels wore road uniforms from their 1979-1982 period.

From the Los Angeles Times, June 27, 1998:
It was Retro Night in Qualcomm Stadium, where the San Diego Padres donned those hideous brown-and-mustard-yellow jerseys for their interleague game against the Angels, and where Afro wigs during batting practice and plaid pants in the bleachers were in vogue.

Why anyone around here would want to turn back the clock to 1978 is a mystery, though, because there is no time like the present for these Padres, who used a game-breaking three-run sixth inning Friday night to beat the Angels, 6-3, before a crowd of 40,621.

Kevin Brown (9-3) gave up three runs on five hits in seven innings, and closer Trevor Hoffman retired five in a row in the eighth and ninth for his 24th save in 24 opportunities, as the National League's hottest team stifled the American League's hottest team.
