The Boston Mets and the Atlanta Athletics locked up in an exciting one-run
game at Fenway Park.  The final score was the Boston Mets 7, the Atlanta
Athletics 6 in 10 innings.
 
Both teams had scored 5 runs after nine full innings.  Boston ended up winning
it in the 10th inning.  Lenny Randle started the inning off right when he
reached on an error.  Steve Henderson came next and he lined a one-base hit.
Jim Rice then banged out a single.  George Scott was up next and he smacked a
single.  The score went back-and-forth with the lead changing 5 times.  
 
The win went to Bob Stanley(4-2) who allowed 1 run in 1 inning. Bob Lacey(3-3)
was charged with the loss in relief.  He gave up 2 hits and no walks without
retiring a batter.
