. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A two-run homer by Hal McRae and two-run single by Frank White carried the Royals to a 4-3 victory over the Rangers. Gaylord Perry, who pitched for the Rangers and struck out 13, was handed a 2-0 lead but lost his advantage when George Brett walked and McRae homered in the third inning. Then in the fourth, after Darrell Porter singled and Fred Patek doubled, White rapped his decisive single. [The Sporting News]
