ST. LOUIS UP)-Mickey Lolich, working with only two days'
rest, beat the mighty Bob Gibson in a seventh-game World
Series duel yesterday 4-1 and the aroused Detroit Tigers
completed a smashing comeback by dethroning the St. Louis

three games-the 1903 Boston Red Sox, 1925 Pittsburgh Pi-
rates and 1958 New York Yankees. When the Red Sox did it

In the wild Tiger clubhouse with
champagne squirting from all cor-

Although Denny McLain won 31
games in regular season and made
up for two series losses by winning
Wednesday's game, it was LUlich
who was the toast of Tigertown in
its greatest hour in 23 years.
Lolich was named the winner
of the World Series sports car
award that had gone to Gibson in
1964 and 1967. He joins the se-
lect circle of three-time series
winners, joined last fall by Gibson
who had won eight Series starts
in a row before today's defeat.
The Tigers' victory was their
third in series competition down
through the years. They have lost
5. It was the Cards' first defeat
in a seven-game set, dropping
their over-all record to 8-4.
Brock wound up as top hitter
in the Series with 13 hits in 28 at
bats for .464, and Dal Maxvill
hit the bottom by going hitless in
22 at bats, topping the old mark
of 0 for 21 last equalled by Gil
Hodges of Brooklyn in 1952.
Yesterday--and in the sun and the warmth of St. Louis' Busch
Stadium, those same Tigers capped a roaring, unbelievable comeback
by shelling Gibson and winning the final, deciding game of the World
The Tigers hardly looked like champions for the first part of
the Series. Gibson completely throttled them in the first game, and
Cardinal power and their own bumbling cost them two more.
The comeback began in game five. Down by three, Lolich settled
down to stop the Cards, and old pro Al Kaline provided the winning
hit in the key seventh inning. It continued Wednesday, as the charg-
ing Tigers scored ten runs in the third and went on to win behind
Denny McLain, 13 -1.
And then it was marvelous Mickey Lolich, on two days rest, blank-
ing St. Louis until the Tigers' bats reached Bob Gibson. And the
roars echoed faintly around old Tiger Stadium.
