. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Rallying for four runs in the 10th inning, the Yankees prevailed over the Mariners, 11-9. Paul Blair hit reliever Enrique Romo's second serve for a three-run homer with two out in the 10th to achieve the victory. The Mariners had taken a 9-7 lead in the top of inning on a solo homer by pinch-hitter Leon Roberts, a pair of singles and a sacrifice fly by Ruppert Jones. The Yanks bounced back to within one run on an RBI single by White off John Montague before Blair delivered the game-winning blast.

The Mariners built an early 6-1 lead with the aid of a five-run second inning capped by Craig Reynolds' first major league grand slam. The Yanks tied the score, 7-7, in the eighth on a solo homer by Graig Nettles, a walk to Reggie Jackson and a two-run homer by pinch-hitter Cliff Johnson. [The Sporting News]
