The Yankees bunched four hits and four walks for five runs in the sixth inning to defeat the Red Sox, 6-3. Thurman Munson and Roy White drew passes to start off. Felipe Alou doubled, driving in Munson to tie the score at 2-2.

After an intentional pass to John Ellis, Ron Swoboda singled, sending the Yankees ahead. A sacrifice fly by Ron Hansen produced another run. An infield hit by Gene Michael loaded the bases. Mel Stottlemyre singled, scoring the fourth run of the frame and chasing Roger Moret. Luis Tiant relieved and passed Munson, batting for a second time, to force in the final tally.
