ed triple in the first inning to
launch Minnesota and Jim Kaat

'! center fielder Chico Salmon's head

home.
Kaat,, also,11-13, gave up Joe
Azcue's 11th home run with Tony
Horton on base in the sixth. He
also had to pitch out of trouble
in the first two innings when
the Indians got two hits each in-
ning but could not score.
Tigers
DETROIT--Joe Sparrha blank-
ed the Kansas City Athletics on
two hits for his fifth shutout of
the season and pitched the De-
troit Tigers to a 4-0 victory last
night.
Sparma, 14-8, struck out eight
including the first four batters
he faced. He gave up a one-out
single to Phil Roof in the third
and Jim Gosger was credited with
a hit in the seventh when his
ground ball hit base runner Ra-
mon Webster.
Detroit picked up a run in the
fourth when Kansas City starter
Chuck Dobson, 8-9, walked Dick
McAuliffe with the bases loaded.
The Tigers knocked Dobson out
in the fifth on run-scoring sin-
