. . . where the 1970s live forever!

For the second day in succession, the Red Sox smashed four homers to highlight a 16-hit attack in a 12-7 victory over the Yankees, who also had 16 hits including three round-trippers. Reggie Smith, Rico Petrocelli, George Scott and Joe Lahoud connected for the Red Sox, while Felipe Alou, Gene Michael and Bobby Murcer produced the Yankees' blows.

The Red Sox, after coming from behind twice to tie the score, exploded for six runs in the sixth inning to wipe out the Yankees' 7-6 lead. Singles by John Kennedy and Luis Aparicio and a walk to Carl Yastrzemski loaded the bases and Petrocelli promptly cleared the sacks with a triple. Scott and Lahoud followed with their homers.
