. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Norm Cash clouted a pair of three-run homers to supply the Tigers' principal power in a 12-7 victory over the Yankees. Cash's first smash of the game capped a seven-run outburst in the second inning. The veteran first baseman hit his other homer in the fourth. Ed Brinkman batted in three runs for the Bengals with a triple and single. [The Sporting News]
