DETROIT-The red-hot Detroit Tigers were cooled off by
the combined pitching efforts of New York's rookie Bill
Burbach and veteran Lindy McDaniel yesterday. It was the .
Tigers' first loss of the season, 9-4.
Joe Pepitone collected four hits, including a home run, y
to lead the way for the Yankees. Bobby Murcer also had two,
hits and scored four times. E
Earl Wilson had a very poor spring training season, and

COLUMBUS - Hoping that
today will be a better day, the
Michigan golf team finished the
first round of the Robert Kepler
Ohio Invitational Tournament in
Columbus yesterday in fourteenth
place in a 15 team field.
The Wolverine golfers finished
the round with a five man total of
417. Michigan State and Purdue'
were tied for the lead at the end
of play yesterday with totals of
tow man for the Michigan links-
men was Randy Erskine with a
score of 79. Captain Keith Mohan
was next with an 82. Following
him were Rod Sumpter with 83,
Mark Christenson at 86, Dan
Schewe with an 87 and John
Roska at 91. Only the top five
scores were counted in the team
Coach Bill Newcomb had little
to say after the round, comment-
ing only that, "All we can hope
is that there will be a great im-
provement in today's play."'
The 54 hole tournament con-
eludes today with 36 holes of play.

Bill Burbach looked very im-

victory. He held the tough Tiger
sluggers scoreless through the first
six. He maintained control most
of the way, finding himself in
trouble only once.

TIGER THIRD BASEMAN Don Wert tags out New York's Jake Gibbs in the second inning of yes-
terday's game. Gibbs, who was trying to advance from second on Horace Clarke's infield grounder,
never quite made it but the Yankees won anyway, 9-4. The loss dropped the Tigers out of the top
spot in the American League race, a game behind the league-leading Washington Senators.
