. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Duke Sims, who opened the Indians' scoring with a homer in the second inning, connected for the circuit again with two out in the 11th to beat the Yankees, 4-3. After Sims' first smash, the Yankees took a 3-1 lead with the aid of a round-tripper by Thurman Munson, but the Indians tied the score in the eighth on a single by Ted Uhlaender and pinch-homer by Graig Nettles.
