members of the Association of

over the International Lawn Ten-

Niki Pilic of Yugoslavia for his
failure to play on his nation's
Davis Cup team.
The dispute will not affect the
women's bracket, where such

The walkout by more than 70

Fro n ire Servite Reports
BOSTON - Even a six game
whammy over the Boston Red
Sox was not enough magic to
keep the faltering Detroit Tigers
from f a lII i n g deeper towards
American League East oblivion
last night as they fell before the
Hose 2-1.
Bill Lee's cocky left arm and
Carlton Fisk's potent bat spelled
the end for the hapless Tigers
before a national television audi-
ence. The loss was the eighth in
succession for the hapless Tigers,
who have now seen themselves
Cubs edge
Mets, P hits
nip Cards
The Chicago Cubs just keep roll-
ing along in the National League
East and the rest of the division
just keeps scrambling a f t e r
Ron Santo's game tying double
in the ninth, followed by Don
Kessinger's game clinching single
gave the visiting Cubs a 3-2
comeback victory over the New
York Mets.
In Philadelphia, rookie Mike
Rogodzinski ripped a two-run
pinch home run in the eighth
inning last night, lifting the
Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-6
victory over the St. Louis Car-
Rogodzinski connected after
Tommy Hutton singled with one
out in the eighth. It was the
rookie's seventh hit this season,
all as a pinch hitter, and it wip-
ed out a Cardinal lead built on
Ted Simmons' third home run
of the season in the top of the
SIMMONS connected after the
Phillies had rallied to tie the
score with two runs in the bot-
tom of the seventh on Cesar To-
var's triple and a single by
Denny Doyle.
St. Louis picked up three runs
in the third off Phillies' starter
Wayne Twitchell.
National League
With one out, Lou Brock and
Ted Sizemore walked. Tim Mc-
Carver singled home Brock.
JOE TORRE then singled to
right scoring Sizemore, and when
Tovar allowed the ball to get
through for an error, McCarver
also scored.
The Phillies, trailing 5-0,
erupted for three in the sixth
and knocked out Cards' starter
Alan Foster.
KEN FORSCH fired a six-hitter
to notch his eighth victory and
the Houston Astros erupted for
nine runs in one inning to swamp
the Cincinnati Reds 13-2 in last
night's game played in the Astro-
Cesar Cedeno's single and his
27th stolen base preceded a run-
scoring single by Bob Watson in
the first inning and Forsch pro-
tected the 1-0 lead uuntil the sixth
when Houston broke it open with
the nine-run explosion, the As-
tros' most productive inning of
the season.
CEDENO'S 13TH homer touched
off the fireworks. Before the in-
ning was over, Cedeno had claim-

fall from first to fifth in the di-
The Tigers started off on the
right track with an A Kaline
blast over the fabled "Green
Monster" in left field.
It was the 380th homer of Ka-
line's career which began ex-
actly 20 years ago last night, in
Fenway Park. K a 1 i n e has
smacked four home runs this
campaign, three in this ancient
Boston stadium.
Bit the Sox were not about to
let Tiger hurler Jim Perry off
so easily. Perry wore out his
welcome in the fifth. Danny
Cater, playing the first while
Bosox star Carl Yaztremski pa-
trolled the outfield, singled. Age-
less Luis Aparicio singled him to
second. Aparicio's base knock
was the 2,600th of his career, and
if the shortstop continues his
time-defying act he will get the
magic 3,000.
Cater moved to third on a fly
ball and galloped home on Rick
Miller's single to center.
The Tigers and the Red Sox
then settled down to. a game of
nerves; each side feinting a score
but neither quite accomplishing a
run. The Sox were getting the
best of this war of nerves, put-
ting men on base in every suc-
ceeding inning.
Then Fisk, Boston's simply su-
perlative sophomore backstop,
ended the nonsense with a solo
shot in the eighth inning, his 16th
round tripper of the year. And
down went the suffering Tigers.
Lee, a supposed source of dis-
sension on the always dissention-
ridden Sox, was brilliant, allow-
ing the Tigers five base runners
in nine innings. He didn't even
hand out a free pass in going
the distance.
The Tigers now know that all
good things must come to an end.
But must all bad things?
Yanks tumble
CLEVELAND - John Ellis and
Charlie Spikes singled home first-
inning runs against their former
team and Chris Chambliss drilled
a decisive two-run single in the
sixth, pacing the Cleveland In-
dians to a 4-2 victory over New
York last night that snapped the
Yankees' eight-game w i n n i n g
Gaylord Perry, who has often
been accused of throwing spit-
balls and grease balls, survived
claims by the Yankees in the
eighth inning that he was putting
a foreign substance on the base-
ball, He allowed nine hits, boost-
ing his record to 8-9.
The Indians, who had lost three
in a row, jumped on Mel Stottle-
myre, 9-7, with first-inning sin-
gles by B u d d y Bell, Oscar
Gamble, Ellis and Spikes for a
2-0 lead. Perry surrendered a run
in the fourth when Roy White
singled, took second on an in-
field out and scored on a single
by Graig Nettles.
