. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The nine-game winning streak of the White Sox came to an end on an unearned run when the Tigers scored in the 10th inning to gain a 6-5 victory. Tom Veryzer was safe on an error by Alan Bannister to start the stanza and Ron LeFlore walked. Tito Fuentes followed with a bunt to Dave Hamilton, who threw wildly to third base in an attempted forceout, allowing Veryzer to score. Milt Wilcox gained his first major league victory since 1974, allowing one run in 5 2/3 innings in relief. [The Sporting News]
