. . . where the 1970s live forever!

A pair of homers by Roy White triggered the Yankees to a 5-3 decision, handing the A's their sixth straight defeat. White tied the score with a solo clout off lefty John Henry Johnson in the third inning and snapped a 2-2 deadlock with a two-run blast off righthander Rick Langford in the fifth.

It marked the fifth time in his career that the switch-hitting White had homered from each side of the plate in one game. [The Sporting News]
