Sept. 30, 1978

With two games to play, the Red Sox remained one game behind the Yankees.

Boston kept pace by torching the Toronto Blue Jays, 11-0, before 29,696 jittery fans. There were plenty of transistor radios on around Fenway, trying to pick up the broadcast from Yankee Stadium, where the Yankees and Indians did battle.

Cleveland carried a 1-0 lead into the eighth inning. The Yankees then scratched out three runs in the eighth, which kept the Red Sox from pulling into a tie at the top.

At Fenway, the Red Sox pounded out an 8-0 lead by the end of three innings, reducing the level of live drama. 

Well, except for manager Don Zimmer receiving news during the third that he had become a grandfather.
