MARSHALL GETS SAVE IN 5-3 WIN:
Hard-hitting Twins subdue Tigers

By TOM STEPHENS
Special toThe Daily
DETROIT-The Minnesota Twins
took advantage of an early three-run
lead, and got suberb relief pitching
from veteran screwballer Mike Mar-
shall, to hand the Detroit Tigers their
third straight loss last night, 5-3, in
front of 15,742 partisan Detroit fans at
Tiger Stadium.
For Detroit starter Steve Baker, it
was the fifth loss on the season against
a single win. Minnesota southpaw Jerry
Koosman went seven innings and
recorded his 11th win against six losses
for the Twins.
Minnesota grabbed an early lead on a
two-run homer in the second by veteran

rightfielder Willie Norwood. Baker was
touched again in the fourth for a leadoff
homer by designated hitter Glenn
Adams.
The Tigers struck back in their half of
the fourth. Lou Whitaker led off with a
single, and advanced to third when
Steve Kemp stroked another line drive
to center. Minnesota centerfielder Ken
Landreaux bobbled the ball, and
Whitaker reached home. Kemp roun-
ded second and was thrown out sliding
into third on a very close play that left
the crowd howling in vain protest.
The Tigers tied the game at three
apiece in the fifth, when Jason Thom-

pson singled and Rusty Staub followed
him with a tremendous home run, his
ninth of the season, into the yawning
upper deck in rightfield.
But the Twins took a 4-3 lead in the
sixth when second baseman Rob
Wilfong led off with a single, stole
second, and then advanced to third on
Adams' slow roller to first, and finally
scored on Landreaux's line single.
Twins' ace reliever Marshall relieved
Koosman in the eighth and retired all
six Tigers he faced in order. Marshall
was threatened only by jason Thom-
pson's long fly to center to lead off the
ninth.
Dave Tobik relieved Baker in the top

of the ninth when the young righty gave
up a leadoff double to Landreaux.
The Twias however iced the cake
against Tobik when Landreaux advan-
ced to third on Mike Cubbage's
sacrifice bunt, and scored easily on Ron
Jackson's line single to right.
The Tigers dropped their sixth
decision of the year to Minnesota
against only two wins despite matching
Minnesota's total of nine hits for the
contest.
Detroit's Kip Young (2-1) goes again-
st Geoff Zahn (7-2) tomorrow night as
the Tigers try to break their three game
losing skein.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP)-
Bobby Knight, the controversial coach
of the United States Basketball team,
might have been provoked in an in-
cident with the police at the Pan
American Games.
"They (the police) were very happy
to drop the whole thing since their man
was, as we say, the provacateur," a
spokesman for the American
delegation said yesterday.
The confrontation took place Sunday
during a dispute over the use of prac-
tice facilities at Roberto Clemente
Stadium. A policeman, identified by the
San Juan Star as Jose de Silva, inter-
vened.
"No blows were struck," the
American team spokesman said.
"There was some pushing and shoving,
but it wasminimal.
