. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A homer by Jim Spencer in the sixth inning for his second RBI of the game produced the tie-breaking run for the White Sox in a 3-2 victory over the Red Sox. In the second, Spencer hit a ground-rule double to drive in one run and Brian Downing followed with a sacrifice fly for another tally. The Red Sox put together a walk, an error and infield out for a run in third and knotted the count in the fourth when Jim Rice tripled and Carlton Fisk lofted a sacrifice fly. [The Sporting News]
