Bengals nipped by NY rally;
slide deeper into AL oblivion

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Bobby Mtrcer's
two-ron double capped a three-
rn New York counter-rally in
the seventh inning and lifted the
streaking Yankees to a 5-4 vic-
tory over the Detroit Tigers last
night.
The Tigers pounded Fritz Pe-
terson and relief ace Sparky Lyle
for four rens in the top of the
seventh but Thurman Munson
opened the Yankees' half with
his ninth home run of the season,
cutting the lead to 4-3 and chas-
ing Jim Perry.
Fred Scherman allowed a one-
out single to Horace Clarke and
a two-out hit to Matty Alou be-
fore Murcer doubled to deep left-
center for the runs that sealed
the Yankees' fifth, victory in a
row and Detroit's fourth straight
setback.
The Yankees led 2-0 when Fritz
Peterson gave way to Lyle after
one-out singles by Dick Sharon
and Ike Brown. Aurelio Rodri-
guez' double to short left drove
in the first run. After an inten-
tional walk to Mickey Stanley,
Taylor's single to right tied the
score but Johnny Callison cut
down Rodriguez at the plate for
the second out.
The runners, however, moved
up a base on the throw and Al
Kaline lashed Lyle's next pitch
for a tie-breaking two-run single.
The Yankees nicked Perry for
two runs in the second. Murcer
led off with a pop fly double and
scored on a single by Ron Blom-
berg, who took second on the
throw to the plate. Blomberg
came home on a double by Graig
Nettles.
Earlier it was announced that
veteran relief pitcher Bob Miller
was sold to Detroit on waivers by
the San Diego Padres.
Since joining San Diego in
April, Miller had appeared in 18
games but had no record nor any
saves with the Padres.
Miller, 33, worked 30% onnings
with San Diego, and had a 4.11
earned run average.
Say Hey
PITTSBURGH - Willie Mays

slogged a three-run double in the
second inning and John Milner
followed with his ninth home run
of the season to power the New
York Mets to a 5-4 victory over
the Pittsburgh Pirates last night.
A lealoff single by Jim Fre-
gosi, a walk to Ron Hodges and
an infield hit by pitcher George
Stone, 3-2, set up Mays' bases-
clearing shot to right-center field
off Steve Blass, 3-5. Two outs
later, Milner homered into the
right field seats.
Terrific TOrrez
MONTREAL, - M i k e Torrez
checked Philadelphia on seven
hits, one of them a first-inning
home run by Del Unser, to carry
the Montreal Expos to a 4-2 vic-
tory over Steve Carlton and the
Phillies last night.
The Expos tied the score in
the bottom of the first on a walk
to Ron Woods, an infield out and
Hal Breeden's single, and took a
2-1 lead in the fifth on two walks
and John Boccabella's single.
Montreal qnocked Carlton, 7-8,
out in the sixth. Torrez led off
with a single, went to second on
a sacrifice ant scored on Woods'
single. After Carlton issued his
fifth walk of the game to Clyde
Mashore, Billy Wilson relieved
him and was greeted by Mike
Jorgensen's run-scoring p i n c h
single.
Hammerin' Hank
SAN DIEGO - Hank Aaron of
Atlanta his the 692nd home run
of his major league career last
night in the first inning of the
Braves' game against the San
Diego Padres.
The homer, a leadoff shot in
the second inning off Randy
Jones, making his first start in
the majors, was the 19th of the
season for Aaron, putting him
within 22 of Babe Ruth's record
714.

NEW YORK'S JOHNNY CALLISON (25) making a rare start is out at second as Detroit's Tony Taylor
throws to first. The lethargic Tigers, reeling with dissention and bad pitching in the bullpen, continue
to put themselves out of the pennant race.
