I have a vivid memory of watching the progress of a Yankees game on Fenway's scoreboard, but I assumed it was in a subsequent trip -- the next year, maybe 1979 -- at a time when the Red Sox and Yankees were battling for first place. On that day in 1976, Boston was in fifth place, 15.5 GB New York.
It turns out it was the same afternoon as my Fenway debut.
The Yankees were hosting the Angels and California had built up an 8-0 lead. The game was in the ninth inning when the 0 on the manual scoreboard in the Wall went down. Enough people in the park had noticed it so there was a low murmur through the crowd (my father and I were in Section 17). What number would come up in its place? I remember it took awhile; maybe the guy in the Wall wanted to create some suspense. Finally ...
The Yankees had tied the game.
Munson grounded out 6-3. Piniella singled to right. Chambliss doubled to right. Nettles singled to right (8-1). Velez walked. Healy singled to center (8-2). Randolph doubled to right (8-4). Verhoeven relieved Tanana. May (hitting for Stanley) singled to right (8-6). White homered (8-8). Munson F7. Piniella reached on E4. Monge relieved Verhoeven. Rivers (running for Pinella) picked off/caught stealing 1-3-6.
The Angels rallied off Sparky Lyle and won the game in 11 innings.
Angels - 100 111 220 03 - 11 17 1
Yankees - 000 000 008 00 - 8 10 2
