. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Red Sox erupted for six runs in the first inning and Gary Peters, who batted in two tallies with a triple, coasted to an 8-1 victory over the Royals. Reggie Smith, who had a run-scoring single in the first, added to the Red Sox lead with a 430-foot homer over both fences in right field in the fourth. The blow was only the 15th to clear the back wall since Kansas City first entered the A. L. in 1955. [The Sporting News]
