. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Winning their sixth straight game, the Red Sox enjoyed a 9-0 romp over the A's as Luis Tiant tossed a four-hitter. Jim Rice hit his 20th homer of the season in the first inning with a mate aboard and drove in another tally with a single in the second when the Red Sox erupted for six runs, three coming on a homer by Carl Yastrzemski.
