Dow Sound City T-Shirt Night - and Singles Night?

July 22, 1977 was "Dow Sound City T-Shirt Night" in San Diego as the Padres hosted the New York Mets. I couldn't find much about Dow Sound City - it was a southern California electronics chain that seems to have been big in the 1970s, but I see no record of it existing after 1983.

Like most promotional games (and indeed, most games) in 1977, the Padres lost, this time by a 5-0 score. Interestingly, the two teams combined for seventeen hits in the game, sixteen of which were singles. The only extra-base hit? A double by losing pitcher Tom Griffin.
