. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A triple by Mickey Stanley and sacrifice fly by Ed Brinkman broke up an overtime game and gave the Tigers a 4-3 victory over the White Sox in 11 innings. While the Tigers took a 3-0 lead, Joe Coleman held the White Sox hitless until the seventh when Dick Allen tripled and Rick Reichardt hit a sacrifice fly. The White Sox then tied the score in the eighth, bunching three singles off Coleman for one run and adding another on a sacrifice fly by Walt Williams after Fred Scherman relieved.
