Yanks Split with ChiSox
June 16, 1970 at Chicago – It’s mid-June and as the weather heats up, so do the bats. The Yankees and White Sox each banged out 13 hits in a wild one on the South Side. Chicago took a 7-1 lead, only to have the Bombers hit back with 6 in the top of the 7th. Two errors and a wild pitch allowed the ChiSox to tally 3 in the bottom of the 7th, and then held on for a 10-7 win. Carlos May paced the Sox with 4 hits. Ed Hermann (14) had 3 hits, including a 3-run bomb. Thurman Munson led the Pinstripes with 3 bingos.
June 17, 1970 at Chicago – Fritz Peterson (9-4) scattered 10 hits through 8 IP, but did not allow a run as New York split the series with a 4-0 win. Roy White’s 2-run double in the 1st would prove to be plenty.
