. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The Yankees knocked out Vida Blue in the first inning while scoring five runs and defeated the Athletics, 6-3. Walks to Graig Nettles and Thurman Munson and a single by Reggie Jackson accounted for the first tally. Lou Piniella drove in another run with a double before a pass to Chris Chambliss loaded the bases.

Cliff Johnson then doubled, driving in two runs and sending Blue to the showers. A sacrifice fly by Paul Blair off reliever Doug Bair capped the stanza. Nettles produced the Yanks' last run with a homer in the second. [The Sporting News]
