. . . where the 1970s live forever!

In a wild donnybrook, the Red Sox finally prevailed over the Angels, 10-9. The score was 9-9 going into the bottom of the ninth when Fred Lynn singled and Jim Rice drew a walk. Carl Yastrzemski laid down a sacrifice bunt. The Angels tried for a force at third but Lynn beat the throw and the bases were loaded. Carlton Fisk then hit a 2-0 pitch down the right field line for the winner.

The Angels had tied the score in the eighth on a bases-loaded walk to Tony Solaita. Lynn and Dwight Evans each had three-run homers for the Bosox. [The Sporting News]
