. . . where the 1970s live forever!

After rallying to tie the game in the ninth inning, the Yankees scored two runs in the 10th and defeated the Orioles, 5-3. Dave McNally, who started for the Orioles, was lifted in the ninth after Danny Cater and John Ellis singled. Pete Richert passed Bobby Murcer to load the bases and the Yankees' tying run then scored on a forceout by Ron Woods.

In the 10th, Horace Clarke walked before Richert gave way to Eddie Watt. After a wild pitch and an infield out, Clarke scored on an infield hit by Felipe Alou, who then stole second and counted an insurance run on a single by Cater. [The Sporting News]
