. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A four-run rally in the eighth inning carried the Yankees to a 6-4 victory over the Athletics. With one out, Jerry Kenney tripled and Bobby Murcer doubled. After walking Roy White, Catfish Hunter gave way to Bob Locker.

An infield hit by Danny Cater filled the bases and Thurman Munson delivered two runs with a single. Following an intentional pass to Jim Lyttle, Gene Michael produced the last run with a sacrifice fly. [The Sporting News]
