Bengal bats split Twins;
Coleman notches tenth

From Wire Service Reports
BLOOMINGTON - M i c k e y
Stanley socked a two-run homer
on Jim Kaat's second pitch of
the game last night, igniting a
four-run outburst that paced the
Detroit Tigers to an 8-3 win over
the Minnesota Twins.
Detroit's Joe Coleman won his
10th game against three losses,
pitching 6% innings despite con-
trol troubles and back-to-back
home runs by Jim Holt and
George Mitterwald in the fourth.
Danny Walton added a third solo
homer for the Twins.
Kaat, now 6-3, left after retir-
ing only one of the first seven
batters. Tony Taylor led off with
a line single on the first pitch of
the game, and Stanley hit the
next delivery 378 feet into the
left field stands.
TWINS THIRD baseman Steve
Braun misplayed Al Kaline's in-
field grounder, Willie Horton sin-
gled and the two advanced when
a pitch got by catcher Mitter-
wald. Designated hitter Frank
Howard, who knocked i three
runs in two at bats, followed with
a bloop dotble to rightfield to
score both runners.
Detroit added another run in
f f{ the third on singles by Horton
and Bill Freehan, with Horton
scoring from third on Howard's
ground out.
After the Twins closed it to 5-2,
the Tigers scored twice more in
the fifth. Ed Brinkman singled,
Taylor walked, Stanley singled
home Brinkman for his third
RBI, and Kaline stroked a sacri-
fice fly to score Taylor.

Singer hums
NEW YORK - Ken Berry
iple Crown hit a three-run homer and Bill
Singer, with ninth-inning relief,
posted his ninth victory, lead-
ing the California Angels to a
5-2 triumph over the Yankees
last night.
Singer, 9-2, allowed two sin-
gles and a run in the first in-
ning and then retired 13 consecu-
tive batters until Thurman Mun-
son opened the sixth with a dou-
ble and scored on Horace
Clarke's single.,
The Angels ripped into loser
Mike Kekich in the third when
Billy Garbarkewitz and Vada
Pinson singled and Berry sliced

his first home run of the season
into the first row of the right
field stands.
THEY ADDED two unearned
runs off Fred Beene in the fifth
after Pinson singled and Berry
reached on an error by second
baseman Horace Clarke. The
runners advanced on Frank
Robinson's 440-foot fly to left-
center. Bob Oliver was purpose-
ly passed and Mike Epstein
struck out but Jerry DaVanon
drilled a double past third base.
Pirates power
PITTSBURGH-Richie Hebner
drove in four runs with a hamer,
double and sacrifice fly and
Willie Stargell and Manny San-
guillen added homers, leading
the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 9-6
victory over the Cincinnati Reds
last night.
Sports of the Daily, page 11
The Reds touched Pirate start-
er Steve Blass for three first-
inning runs, but the Pirates went
ahead with a five-run third keyed
by a two-run homer by Stargell,
his 15th, and a two-run double
by Hebner.
SANGUILLEN and Hebner hit
consecutive homers in the fifth
before the Reds sent Blass to
the showers with two runs in the
seventh on two singles sand-
wiched around a walk, a force
out and an error by shortstop
Jack Hernandez.
Hebner drove in his fourth run
with a sacrifice fly in the sev-
enth and Bob Robertson added
some insurance with a run-scor-
ing single later in the inning.
Wood shelled
MILWAUKEE - George Scott
drove in two runs with a home
run and a double off Wilbur
Wood, ruining the knuckleballer's
bid for his 14th victory and pow-
ering the Milwaukee Brewers to
a 5-3 victory over the Chicago
White Sox last night.
Wood, who had won five deci-
sions in a row and 12 of his last
13, was shelled for 11 hits in
five complete innings and took
his fourth defeat.

PEDRO GARCIA and Eddi Herman tango at the plate last night when the Brewer second sacker tried to score on an infield grounder.
Herman rose to the occasion and taged him out. The hand at the upper left belongs to the umpire who is pointing out that Garcia is not
the twinkle toes the Brewer coaching staff thought he was.
