. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Doubles by Lamar Johnson and Kevin Bell and a single by Jim Essian drove in five runs in the seventh inning and carried the White Sox to a 7-3 victory over the Red Sox, who were stopped on their six-game winning streak. With the score tied, 2-2, Jorge Orta was safe on an error, Richie Zisk walked and Johnson doubled for one run. After an intentional pass to Eric Soderholm, Bell hit his double, driving in two runs, and Essian singled to produce another pair. [The Sporting News]
