. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A pinch-double by Hawk Taylor in 12th inning scored Joe Keough and gave the Royals a 1-0 victory over the Indians. Keough led off the stanza with a single and was sacrificed to second by Paul Schaal. After Rich Severson grounded out, Ed Kirkpatrick was passed intentionally. Taylor then batted for Al Fitzmorris and doubled on the first pitch by Phil Hennigan. [The Sporting News]
