April 8, 1978 at Arlington Stadium

It didn’t help that the Yankees pushed just one runner across the plate.  In the fifth inning, Lou Piniella led off things with a triple and then he later scored on Chris Chambliss’ single.  Chambliss and Bucky Dent were the only Yankees with more then one hit in the game.
