. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The clutch relief pitching of Steve Stone, who struck out Joe Rudi and Gene Tenace with the bases loaded and one out in the 12th inning, enabled the White Sox to emerge with a 6-5 victory over the Athletics. Jorge Orta drove in two runs for the White Sox with a homer and triple, while Deron Johnson hit a homer with a man on base for the A's, who tied the score with an unearned run in the ninth.

Johnny Jeter singled for the White Sox in the 12th, stole second and scored the winning run on a double by Pat Kelly. The A's then loaded the bases against Cy Acosta on three singles with one out in their half before Stone put down the threat. [The Sporting News]
