Monday, July 5, 1976: Texas 8, Detroit 6. Starter Gaylord Perry collapsed in the fourth and squandered a four-run lead, but reliever Jeff Terpko entered to pitch a career high 5.2 innings of one-run ball. Texas regained the lead in the seventh thanks to a two-run single by Tom Grieve. The Rangers improved to 43-32, 3.5 games behind the Angels.
The 5th was the fireworks game; Texas spent Sunday the 4th in Chicago. I was seven years old.
