Tigers wasted no time in their
half of the fourth. After Stanley

"Storming" Norm Cash launched
a towering drive into the upper
deck in right field to give Detroit
a 3-2 lead.
Bill Freehan followed with a
single, but Jackson made an out-

walk to McLain left the Tigers
with two outs, bases loaded, and
the Athletics third pitcher, Paul
Lindblad. He struck out McAuliffe,
ending the threat.
Detroit's one-run lead was not
long lived, as the Athletics scored
in the fifth on a walk, a pinch hit
sacrifice, and a single.
In the next inning, Oakland
took its 4-3 lead on Jackson's sec-
ond homer. McLain noted after
the game, "The first one he hit
was on a good curve; the second
unfortunately was right down the
middle."

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Bubba
Wyche tossed a 20-yard touch-
down pass on the final play and
then threw a two-point conversion
after the gun to give Tennessee a
17-17 tie with Georgia yesterday
in a Southeastern Conference
football game. .
Wyche, a third-team hero for
the Vols last year, revived Tennes-
see with a comeback that came
after Georgia had apparently
clinched the victory in the na-
tionally-televised opener of the
college campaign.
Georgia, which used a jarring
defense to offset four first half
fumbles, shot in front 17-9 in the
second half with a 90-yard punt
return for a touchdown by Jake
Scott and an 8-yard scoring run
by Bruce Kemp.
The Vols, playing on new arti-
ficial turf for the first time in
Dixie, marched 48 yards in the last
76 seconds to tie the game with
Wyche's deadly passes providing
the firepower.
Thrown back from the Georgia
four to the 20 by the Bulldog d6-
fenders, Wyche then drilled a 20-
yard strike to end Gary Krein
at the final gun.'
Coach Doug Dickey told the Vols
to go for the two-point tying con-
version. Wyche cooly spotted end
Kenny Delong open, and the big
junior grabbed the ball and pulled

DENNY MCLAIN DISPLAYS the form which brought him his thirtieth victory of the season yester-
day. At top, McLain begins the final stage of his Jwindup by throwing his arm out from behind his
back. He then cocks his arm in a nearly vertical position, with the ball just to the right of his ear
(center). Finally, after releasing the fastball, he follows through, extending his arm downward
nearly to his knee (bottom).
