. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Mel Stottlemyre pitched a three-hitter in the first game and Danny Cater supplied the winning double in the second game as the Yankees beat the Brewers in a doubleheader, 2-1 and 5-4. The Yankees also managed only three hits off Marty Pattin in the opener, but a walk to Horace Clarke, double by Jake Gibbs and sacrifice flies by Roy White and Bobby Murcer produced their two runs in the fourth inning. Dave May homered for the Brewers in the ninth.

In the nightcap, an intentional pass backfired on the Brewers in the seventh inning. With Gibbs on base and the score tied, 4-4, the Brewers passed Murcer to get at Cater, who upset the move with his double, scoring Gibbs with the winning run. [The Sporting News]
