run in the second inning. He
struck out five and walked three.

got two of the nine hits off Sam
McDowell, 1-2, during the six in-

way to the Tigers 21st victory.
McAuliffe hit his first home run
of the 'year into the upper deck
in right field in the fourth in-
ning. DH Gates Brown singled,
moved to second on a fluke sin-
gle by Duke Sims.
Sims fisted one off Yankee
starter George Medich towards
shortstop Gene Micjhael. Michael,
a rather adept fielder, seemed to
have lost the ball in the bright
Tiger Stadium lights and the ball
fell harmlessly in for the safety.

The Bengals got on the board
again in the eighth as Sims,
whose bat is quite hot since he
has been inserted in the lineup,
came scampering home on a Jim
Northrup single.

silenced quite effectively by L-

oening slump, solved the portly
lefthander with two safeties.
The victory was Lolich's sixth
complete game. Of these, Hard-
Luck Mick has been on the wrong
end in four. Two have been 1-0
and the other two of his com-
plete game losses have been by
the score of 2-1.
The loss for Medich, a pre-
med student, was his second in
five decisions and for the Yanks
destroyed their hopes for a tan-
talizing and uplifting three game
sweep of the Detroit ball club.
Although the place in the stand-
ings mean little at this point in
the crowded and unstable East-
ern Division, the Tigers do have
a grasp on first. Their 21-20
mark is one game better than
the Yanks 20-21 record.
