» September 24, 1972: In the nitecap of a twinbill sweep over the Indians, Sparky Lyle sets an American League record and tying the ML mark by saving his 35th game. The Yanks win, 8–3, after gaining a 5–4 win in the opener when they score two unearned runs on five Indian errors in the 11th. Munson steals 2B by kicking the ball out of Frank Duffy's glove and going to 3B on the error. Duffy then boots a grounder and throws wildly for two more E's. Catcher Gerry Moses then picks up a squibber and fires over 1B and RF Del Unser's throw to the plate is over Moses' head for error 5.
» July 19, 1978: The Red Sox beat the Brewers 8–2, scoring four in the 7th and four in the 8th, to increase their lead in the American League Eastern Division to nine games over Milwaukee, 12 1/2 over Baltimore, and 14 games over the 4th-place Yankees. In the 7th, the Sox have George Scott on 2B and Butch Hobson, playing his first game in weeks because of muscle spasms, on 1B. On a Frank Duffy single, Scott scores on a close play, prompting an argument by Brews' catcher Charlie Moore. No time is called, however, and Hobson strolls around the bases to score from first, while Duffy is finally thrown out trying for 3B. Fisk accounts for the other three runs in the inning with his 13th homer of the year.
