. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Trailing 9-0 after 2½ innings, the White Sox bounced back to scalp the Indians, 10-9. The comeback began in the third when Greg Pryor walked and scored on a triple by Ralph Garr. After Johnny Grubb dropped a foul fly by Alan Bannister for an error, Bannister walked. RBI singles by Wayne Nordhagen, Lamar Johnson and Bill Nahorodny followed before a wild pitch, a sacrifice fly by Jorge Orta and an error by Tom Veryzer produced two more runs.

In the fourth, Garr was safe on Veryzer's second error and, after Henry Cruz walked, Al Fitzmorris relieved starter Sid Monge and walked Chet Lemon to load the bases. Nordhagen singled home two runs and Dennis Kinney came on to be greeted with a single by Johnson and groundout by Orta, each accounting for an RBI. [The Sporting News]
