. . . where the 1970s live forever!

An unearned run was all the scoring in the game as the White Sox whitewashed the Indians, 1-0, behind the combined pitching of Ken Kravec and Jim Willoughby. The Sox tally came in the opening frame. Ralph Garr beat out an infield single and reached second on a throwing error by Buddy Bell. A sacrifice by Chet Lemon moved Garr to third and he scored on a sacrifice fly by Wayne Nordhagen. The Tribe had runners on first and third with one out in the third but Willie Horton ended the threat by hitting into a double play. [The Sporting News]
