. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Pushing across two runs in the eighth inning, the Angels came from behind to defeat the Red Sox, 4-3. The Angels trailed, 3-2, when Dan Ford and Don Baylor singled with one out to chase Red Sox starter Bob Stanley and bring on reliever Tom Burgmeier.

Willie Aikens hit a grounder to first, but Jim Dwyer booted the ball, allowing Ford to score as Baylor moved to third. Dick Drago replaced Burgmeier on the hill and Brian Downing blooped a 3-and-2 pitch for a single to give the Angels their 10th victory in the last 12 games. [The Sporting News]
