. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Thurman Munson collected a single, double and homer, driving in four runs, to lead the Yankees' 14-hit attack in an 11-4 victory over the Brewers. Steve Kline, who started for the Yankees, developed stiffness in his elbow and was forced to leave the mound with one out in the sixth inning. Sparky Lyle finished the game and struck out six batters, including five in a row at one stretch. [The Sporting News]
