. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The White Sox collected only three hits off Nolan Ryan but took advantage of three walks in the second inning to defeat the Angels, 3-2. Ryan, who failed to strike out at least 10 batters for the first time in eight games, opened the second by passing Royle Stillman and Chet Lemon.

Eric Soderholm forced Stillman at third and, after Jack Brohamer walked, Jim Essian forced Lemon at the plate. But Ralph Garr then singled, driving in two runs, and Bannister followed with another single to plate the deciding tally. Dave Chalk batted in the Angels' runs with a sacrifice fly and homer.
