. . . where the 1970s live forever!

The White Sox showed power with homers by Wayne Nordhagen, Oscar Gamble and Henry Cruz to pull away to a 7-2 victory over the Athletics. After the White Sox took a 3-0 lead, Nordhagen homered with a man on base in the sixth inning. The A's came back with two runs, one on a homer by Mitchell Page, but the White Sox clinched their decision with circuit clouts by Gamble in the eighth and Cruz in the ninth. [The Sporting News]
