GAME 4 - Indians 8, Angels 7 (13 inn)

GAME 4 - Municipal Stadium
Bo Belinsky vs Luis Tiant
After going 11 innings the day before, why not go 13 innings today ?  Starters (BoTito_Francona Belinsky / Luis Tiant) were purely pedestrian, and both were gone by the end of the 6th.  With only half of the game played by this point the Halos were destined to send out 7 relievers, while the Tribe used 3.  Sonny Sieberts meldown in the 8th and 9th innings allowed 3 runs to score, which helped the Halos erase a 3 run deficit.  Jim Piersall, Buck Rodgers and Lou Clinton all had RBI singles, which forced extra innings.  Fast forward to the home half of the 13th where Fred Whitfield singled off of Don Lee to lead off the inning.  A walk to Vic Davilillo moved Whitfield to scoring position.  After Dick Howser popped out to short Frank Chance walked to load the bases and Tito Francona singled home the winning run off of the Angels 8th pitcher of the day, Bob Duliba.
Indians lead series 3-1
