. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Switch-hitter Roy White smashed a pair of three-run homers, one batting lefthanded in the first inning and the other swinging righthanded in the eighth, to power the Yankees to a 7-3 victory over the Athletics. Horace Clarke and Bobby Murcer were on base with singles ahead of each of White's wallops. [The Sporting News]
