. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Five homers powered the Red Sox to 6-2 and 8-2 victories in a sweep of a doubleheader with the Indians. After the Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first inning of the opener on two hits, two passed balls and two walks, Tony Conigliaro homered with a man in base in the fifth. Ray Culp squeezed another run home in the sixth and Rico Petrocelli hit for the circuit in the eighth. Duke Sims and Tony Horton rapped back-to-hack homers for the Indians' runs in the sixth.

The nightcap was marked by a rhubarb in the first inning when Tony Conigliaro was hit on the left arm by a pitch and charged the mound to tangle with Frank Lasher. Conigliaro was thumbed from the game. Billy Conigliaro and Tom Satriano hit consecutive homers for the Red Sox in second inning and John Kennedy connected with a man on base in the third. Ted Uhlaender homered for the Indians. [The Sporting News]
