. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Orioles exploded for six runs in the second inning and went on to defeat the Yankees, 11-6. With the bases loaded, two out and all runners moving on a 3-2 count, Paul Blair cleared the sacks with a single for the most productive hit of the stanza. Dick Hall, pitching in relief as the third man on the mound for the Orioles, held the Yankees hitless in the last four frames. [The Sporting News]
