DETROIT-There was no joy in
Motown last night. Mighty Mayo
has struck out.
Boston rallied for three runs in
the ninth inning, nullifying a two-
run homer by Jim Northrup and
handing Detroit their third
straight loss, 4-2.
The win gave Boston a sweep
of the two-game showdown and
left the Tigers a game out of
first place.
Mickey Lolich, riding the crest
of a five game winning streak,
struck out 12 but faltered in the
ninth. He gave up a leadoff sin-
gle to Jerry Adair, issued his
first walk of the night to Carl
Yastrzemski and allowed a run-
scoring single by George Scott.
Tiger Manager Mayo Smith con-
ferred with Lolich before Scott
singled but elected to keep the
southpaw in. He pulled Lolich
after the single and brought in
21-game winner Earl Wilson.

Reggie Smith moved the run-
ners up with a sacrifice and pinch-
hitter Dalton Jones drew an in-
tentional walk. But Wilson wild-
pitched Yastrzemski in with the
winning run and Russ Gibson add-

rifice fly to right.

singles, knocked in the first Bos-

pitcher, picked up his second win

hitter Lenny Green and McAuliffe.
Eddie Mathews, batting for Oyler,
struck out and Kaline lined hard
to center to end the game.

ly out of the locker room after
the game, losing pitcher Lolich

contest: "Nothing much can be

Illini Suffer Scandal Losses

Hawkeyes Face Bleak Future

How will the slush fund scandal
that rocked the Big Ten last year
show its effect on the Illinois foot-
ball team this season?
The prevailing opinion is thatj
the team is angered with the firing
of Pete Elliott as head football
coach and with the NCAA two-year
ban against participation in the
Rose Bowl. Thus the team should
have an incentive to prove they
still are able to win the Big Ten
Other opinions are that the sus-
pension of eight football players
and the Rose Bowl ban will hurt
the team rather than give it in-

In order to fill this gap, Valek
has moved his two co-captains,
Ken Khiec and Ron Bess into the
secondary. Khiec, a 6-1, 192 senior,
was moved from his usual defen-
sive end slot, and Bess, 6-0 and
193 pounds, was shifted from of-
fensive halfback. Two other pros-
pects, junior Fred Wolf and senior
Rich Erickson, are expected to pro-'
vide further support.
In order to ease the pressure on
the defensive secondary, it is ex-
pceted that Coach Valek will make
liberal use of reddogging the pass-
er. The Illini defensive line and
linebackers are as strong as the
secondary is weak.
The linebacking positions will
all be handled by experienced play-
ers. The middle position will be
manned by senior Dave Tomasula,
who has been compared to Dick
Butkus. Last year he played the
last half of the season with a
