DETROIT - It was a batting coach's
dream. The Tiger bats were smoking
last night as they pounded the
Milwaukee Brewers, 11-2.
Jack Morris (9-5) stifled the visitors
by yielding only five hits, with relief
help in the ninth from John Hiller. On
the losing end was former Tiger Jim
Slaton (10-5), who seems to be jinxed at
Tiger Stadium - he hasn't won here
since April, 1976.
THERE WAS not much that three
Brewer pitchers could do against six-
teen hits, including four homeruns. No
one in the Bengal lineup was left out of
the hit-producing barrage.
The Tigers opened the scoring in the
third inning. Second baseman Loy
Whitaker looped a single to left, and
Jason Thompson sent him to third with
a single. Champ Summers then served
up his first of two doubles to score
In the fourth, the Tigers' designated
hitter and newest addition, Altar
Greene, smacked the first hit of his
major league career. And quite a hit it
was - a homerun to the lower deck in.
The Brewers tied it up in the sixth,
Morris' only shaky inning, when Cecil

Cooper lofted a two-run homer to the
upper deck in right. But that was all the
runs Milwaukee could manage.
MORRIS GOT a little breathing room
in the Tiger half of the seventh, which
saw Slaton depart. A walk to Alan
Trammell on four pitches, a single by
Ron LeFlore, and a perfect bunt off the
bat of Whitaker put men on second and
third. Steve Kemp then tallied two RBI
by dribbling an infield single off the
glove of second baseman Jim Gantner.
That was far from the end of the
Tiger scoring, however, as the hot bats
produced a landslide of runs in the
Lance Parrish and John Wockenfuss,
pinch hitting for Greene, led off with
back-to-back homeruns. Le Flore
slashed an RBI double to the corner in
right and came home on Whitaker's
THE TIGERS' big guns for the
evening then stepped in. Kemp drove in
his third RBI of the contest with a
sacrifice fly and Summers drove in two
runs with his tenth homerun of the year.
The Tigers added a dash of ex-
citement in the second frame. With two
down, third baseman Tom Brookens
singled to center, and advanced to third
on Trammell's bloop single. They then
attempted to squeeze outadouble steal,
and although the Bengal shortstop was
safe at second base, Brookens couldn't
slide past Brewer catcher Charlie
The loss was only the second in the
last thirteen games for the Brewers.
Tonight's contest between the two
clubs will pit Tiger rookie Dan Petry (2-

minimum - as the Mets beat the San
Francisco Giants 3-0 yesterday.
It was the second time this season
Swan, (9-9), has blanked the Giants and
his third shutout of the season overall.
He was never in trouble, allowing only
two batters to get past first base -
Darrell Evans, who doubled in the,
seventh inning, and Dennis Littlejohn,
who doubled in the eighth.
Swan, who struck out seven and
walked none, beat the Giants 2-0 on a
two-hitter in April.
The righthander got all the support he
needed in the second inning when Joel
Youngblood reached first on a fielder's
choice, stole second, went to third on a
throwing error by catcher Littlejohn
and came home on a passed ball.
Youngblood clubbed his 13th homer of
the year off Giants starter Bob-Knep-
hits in their biggest output this season,
enabling Mike Torrez to breeze to his
10th victory in 16 decisions.
With a 16-4 lead, Torrez was inserted
into the batting order as Boston sub-
stituted- freely and deleted the
designated hitter. He gave way to pin-
ch-batter Joel Finch, another pitcher,
who lined out to right. Finch remained
in the game as a reliever.
Kingman retired the first two Boston
batters easily, but then surrendered a
walk and Rice's home run into the cen-

The Red Sox nailed down the victory
with a six-run sixth inning and a ded
