DETROIT - Frank How-
ard's tie-breaking two-run
homer off Wilbur Wood in
the eighth inning lifted the
Detroit Tigers to a 6-5 vic-
tory over the Chicago White
Sox last night.
With the score tied 4-4, Willie
Horton led off the eighth with a
single. Wood, 14-6, retired the
next two batters, but then How-
ard, the Tigers' designated hit-
ter, belted his firsthhome run of
the season into the spper left
field seats.
Chicago came back with one
run in the ninth on one-out sin-
gles by Pat Kelly, Dick Allen and
Bill Melton. But reliever John
Hiller, 3-2, retired Carlos May on
a grounder and struck out Rick
Reichardt to end the game.
The Tigers had taken a 4-2 lead
by scoring three runs in the third
on a run-scoring double by Al
Kaline, a sacrifice fly by Bill
Freehan and a run-scoring single
by Ike Brown.
But Chicago tied the score with
a pair of runs in the sixth on two-
out singles by Ed Herrmann,
Eddie Leon, pinch hitter Tony
Muser and John Jeter.
The game was delayed for 58
minutes by rain following the
sixth inning.
Howard's blast was especially
comforting to Bengal boosters
as he had been so fooled by
Wood knucklers in his previous
two trips to the plate. In one
swing he had seemed to go
around twice.
The victory gave the Tigers a
tie for the first place slot in the
American League East, pend-
ing the outcome of the Yankee
game with Oakland on the West
Coast.

DETROIT /)-Former Detroit Red Wing superstar

said he has been offered a $500,000 bonus plus another
half-million spread over the next four years.
Aero General Manager Jim Smith said only minor issues
such as moving expenses, insurance program, endorsement
and promotional games.

going to pay him."

more Orioles to a 6-4 victory over
the Kansas City Royals last night.
Tommy Davis led off the ninth

The Royals scored three runs
in the seventh to tie the score 4-4.
Baltimore starter Jim Palmer
walked Fran Healy and Paul

So does Walt
CLEVELAND -Walt Williams
and John Ellis smacked home
runs to power the Cleveland
Indians to a 5-4 victory over the
Texas Rangers last night.
Williams unloaded his first
homer of the season with one
aboard in the third, and Ellis
added his two-run shot, No. 2 of
the year, in the sixth.
The Rangers took a 1-0 lead
when leadoff batter Dave Nelson

ripped his fourth home run off
starter and winner Milt Wilcox,
4-3.
The Indians tied the game in
the third on Buddy Bell's run-
-scoring triple and went ahead on
Williams' homer.
The Rangers regained the lead,
4-3, in the sixth on four singles

er, leading the Chicago Cubs to

Astros last night.
Reuschel, 7-4, pitched hitless
ball until Cesar Cedeno led off
the seventh inning with a single.
Lee May singled Cedeno to third,
but Doug Rader bounced into a
double play to end the only threat
off the Chicago right-hander.
Reuschel and Houston's Ken
Forsch, 6-6, were lockedd in a
scoreless duel until the fifth
when Chicago scored its winning
runs.
Don Kessinger doubled and
Reuschel was safe on a sacrifice
bunt after Forsch threw the ball
late to third in an attempt to
get Kessinger. Rick Monday
bounced into a double play as
Kessinger scored,
