. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Wilbur Wood, making his first appearance since suffering a shattered kneecap last May 9, pitched two innings in relief and was tagged for five runs as the Rangers completed a 14-4 victory over the White Sox. Ken Henderson greeted Wood's arrival in the eighth with a smash off the center field wall for an inside-the-park homer.

Mike Hargrove singled, Toby Harrah walked and Willie Horton capped the procession of the Rangers' "H" batters by smashing a homer. Claudell Washington and Sandy Alomar each drove in three earlier runs for the Rangers. Washington accounted for his RBIs with a homer and infield out and Alomar with a pair of singles.
