NEW YORK - Mickey Lolich
kept Detroit's dim pennant hopes
alive last night when he shut
out New York on four hits and
beat the Yankees 1-0.
The victory ended a two-game
losing streak for the fourth place
Tigers and kept them 1%/2 games
behind first place Minnesota,
which defeated California 7-3
yesterday.
Detroit which has only ifour
games left t play, also is one-
half game back of both Boston
and Chicago. The Red Sox were
beaten by Cleveland 6-3 and the
White Sox were rained out at
R Kansas City.
Lolich and Mel Stottlemyre
were locked in a scoreless duel
through the first five innings with
the game's only hit a single by
New York's Horace Clarke in the
first:
Then, Lennie Green sliced a
double to left, opening the sixth.
He, moved to third on Dick Mc-
Auliffe's single up the middle.
When Joe Pepitone's throw came
through to the plate, McAuliffe
took second. Al Kaline was pur-
posely walked, loading the bases
with none out.'
Ed Mathews sent a long fly to
Steve Whitaker in left field and
Green raced home with the
game's only run. Stottlemyre
then escaped the inning without
further damage.

Lolich's closest call came in the
bottom of the sixth- With two
out. Clarke stroked his second hit
of the game and then stole sec-
ond. Bill Freehan, the -TIgers'
catcher, protested that the pitch
was a foul tip and was ejected
from the game by umpire Hank
Soar.
Jerry Kenney walked and then
a wild pitch advanced the run-
ners to second and third. Mantle
struck out, ending the inning.
Lolich, who evened his record

at 13-13, struck out five. Stottle-
myre allowed just three hits in
the eight innings he worked and
lost his 15th.

Twins Win, 7-3
MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL-
Minnesota reclaimed undisputed
possession of first place in the
pulsating American League pen-
nant race yesterday, riding a pair
of Harmon Killebrew's mighty
home runs and a homer and a
triple by Bob Allison to a 7-3
comeback victory over California.
Killebrew's 435 foot two-run
homer after Cesar Tovar singled
4gnited a four-run Twin rally
in the sixth inning that wiped
out a 3-2 California lead. Kille-
brew then added a solo shot 430
feet to left-center in the seventh.
In the sixth, the Twins added
two more runs with the help of
three Angel errors.
Allison walked, moved to sec-
ond on Carew's single and scored
when Jim Fregosi threw the ball
into the dugout trying for as
,double play on Ted Uhlaender's
grounder.
Uhlaender then raced home
when Bobby knopp bobbled
pitcher Jim Kaat's grounder. Uh-
lander appeared to be an easy
out at the plate, but he knocked
the ball out of Bob Rodgers'
glove for the third error of the
inning.
Kaat weathered a three-run
Angeles third inning to post his
16th victory against 13 defeats.

B TEAM WINS, 9-3:
Ruggers Drop Opener

By DAVID MILDNER
The Michigan Rugby Football
Club dropped a 17-6 decision to
Windsor in the league opener for
both teams last Sunday. A com-
bination of frequent penalties
against Michigan and domination
of the lineouts by a strong, well-
drilled Windsor squad spelled dis-
aster for the visiting Wolverines.
Michigan held a 6-5 advantage
late in the first half, after Joe
Clare kicked a pair of three-point
penalty goals. A missed tackle in
the backfield allowed a Windsor
winger to score a try (similar to a
football touchdown) which was
converted into a goal, worth five
points.
The lead was relinquished on a
second Windsor try. The conver-
sion attempts failed, but Windsor
took an 8-6 margin into the inter-
mission.
SOUTHWEST ONTARIO UNION

Michigan winger Bill Fleish-
man of the offensive play in
the second half, although neither"
team could muster a sustained
drive. Numerous infringements by
the Wolverines gave Windsor a
pair of penalty goals and a penal-
ty try, while the Michigan for-
wards repeatedly failed to gain
possession of the loose ball.
Tyrus Gerlach kicked a pair of
penalty goals to lead the Michigan
B team to a 9-3 victory following
the A game Sunday. A try by
John Adams late in the first half
gave the Wolverines a 9-0 inter-
mission advantage which , was
never seriously challenged.
The Wolverines take on the Chi-
cago Lions in Ann Arbor this Sat-
urday, and entertain the Univer-
sity of Toronto on Sunday. Both
games will be at 3 p.m. on Wines,
Field.
