. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Four hits by Willie Randolph paced the Yankees to a 14-2 rout of the Mariners as Catfish Hunter, with relief help from the returning Rich Gossage, got credit for the victory. The Yanks took a 3-0 lead in the second inning and locked up the game with five runs in the third, including a homer by Randolph with two men on base. [The Sporting News]
