. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Tom Bradley, getting back on the beam with his fourth shutout of the season, pitched the White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the Yankees. The young righthander's triumph was only his first since June 30 and the complete game was his first since May 21. Tom Egan and Bill Melton whacked homers for the White Sox. [The Sporting News]
