DETROIT BATS HIT TARGET, 5-2
By MARK BOROWSKI
DETROIT - A hunting season
opened early for the Detroit Tigers and
Milwaukee Brewer pitcher Moose Haas
was the game. The Tigers successfully
stalked their prey, tapping Haas for
four runs en route to their 5-2 victory
last night at Tiger Stadium.
Detroit rookie pitcher Dan Petry up-
ped his major league record to 3-1 with
a near-perfect outing. His shutout was
ruined by ex-Tiger Ben Oglivie's ninth
inning homer with one Brewer aboard.
Previous to this he retired nine con-
secutive Milwaukee batters.

opened the attack with a looping single

knocked Haas out of the game and the
Brewers called on reliever Paul Mit-
chell to end the Detroit threat.
Shoddy base running helped Mitchell
get out of the inning. Tom Brookens
tapped a grounder to Milwaukee third
baseman Jim Gantner. He threw it to
catcher Charlie Moore, attempting to
cut down Parrish at the plate.
Trammell then grounded out to third to
end the inning.
Brookens added one more run to the
Tiger tally with an upper deck homerun
to left field in the seventh inning. This
put the Tigers up 5-0.
The Tigers travel to Toronto tonight
to face the Blue Jays. Milt Wilcox (8-4)
of the Bengals is scheduled to face
Toronto's Phil Huffman (4-11).
