Mel Stottlemyre not only pitched a four-hitter but also put the Yankees ahead with a homer in the seventh inning to defeat the Red Sox, 5-2. After Stottlemyre's smash snapped a 2-2 tie, the Yankees put the game away with two runs in the eighth on a walk to Bobby Murcer, triple by Roy White and single by Felipe Alou. [The Sporting News]
