. . . where the 1970s live forever!

In a game that contrasted individual success and team failure, Dock Ellis gained his seventh straight victory as the Yankees sent the Rangers down to their 10th defeat in a row, 7-5. Graig Nettles hit a homer, double and single, driving in three runs for the Yankees, while Thurman Munson accounted for two RBIs with a pair of singles.

Ellis was lifted in the seventh inning. Dick Tidrow, the second of two Yankee relievers, gave up four runs in the ninth, three on a homer by Mike Hargrove, before ending the game. [The Sporting News]
