. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Unfurling a two-hitter, Rick Honeycutt pitched the Mariners to a 5-1 triumph over the Yankees. The Mariners scored twice off Ron Guidry in the second inning when Tom Paciorek walked, Dan Meyer unloaded a triple and Larry Cox stroked a sacrifice fly. Leon Roberts led off the third with a homer and Bill Stein hit for the circuit in the fourth. A single by Meyer in the sixth closed out the Mariners' scoring. [The Sporting News]
