Joe Coleman struck out 14 Oak-
land Batters, setting a baseball
playoff record yesterday and keep-
ing Detroit's American League
pennant hopes alive with a 3-0 vic-
tory over the A's.
The A's still lead the best-of-five
series 2-1 and need one more vic-
tory eithe'r Wednesday or, if neces-
sary, Thursday to clinch its first
World Series berth since 1931.
Coleman made sure the . A's
didn't get the victory Tuesday.
The hard-throwing pitcher worked
out of frequent jams, allowing sev-
en hits and pitching with men on
base in all but two innings. But
his strikeout pitch kept bailing him
out of trouble.
His 14 strikeouts broke the play-
off record of 12 established by;
Baltimore's Jim Palmer on Oct.
5, 1970, against Minnesota.
The Tigers took advantage of a

Then Holtzman walked Willie

ley on a fly to short center for the
second out as the runners held.
