. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The White Sox played their first game under Jimmy Adair as interim manager, succeeding Don Gutteridge, and lost to the Athletics, 2-1. The White Sox scored in the second inning on a single by Duane Josephson, forceout by Ken Berry, two wild pitches by Blue Moon Odom and an error by Bert Campaneris. Odom accounted for his own tying run in the third, stretching a bloop hit into a double, stealing third and continuing home on a two-out triple by Campaneris. [The Sporting News]
