B rnkman's HR wins,
Howard adds 2HRs to aid Tigers


By The Associated Press
DETROIT - Ed Brinkman crashed a game-winning solo
home run in the ninth inning and towering Frank Howard
hit a pair of homers, propelling the Detroit Tigers to a 6-5
victory over the Boston Red Sox last night.
The Tigers had tied the game in the eighth on Howard's
fifth homer of the baseball season and Al Kaline's run-pro-
ducing single. Boston took a 5-3 lead in the seventh when Or-
lando Cepeda scored Carl Yastrzemski with his 15th homer
of the season.

BALTIMORE PITCHER DAVE McNALLY was felled by a Chris Chambliss line drive in baseball action
last night. McNally was hit in the face with the shot but was not seriously injured due to the fact that
he has his glove in front of his face. Third sacker Brooks Robinson tries to comfort McNally who
is obviously in a great deal of pain. Baltimore split with the Indians, winning the first game on
Bobby Grich' grand slam but losing the nightcap 6-4.

Baltimore (A) - The Balti-
more Colts traded wide receiv-
er - placekicker Jim O'Brien,
whose 32-yard field goal with
five seconds left won Super
Bowl V, to the Detroit Lions
yesterday night in exchange for
an undisclosed draft choice.
A Colts' spokesman said the
draft pick involved in the
O'Brien deal had been sent to
the Lions last month in a trade
that brought veteran defensive
tackle Joe Schmiesing to Balti-
Hof numerous jams and Bernie
Carbo threw out two runners on
the basepaths and doubled home
the game's first run as the high-
flying Cardinals completed a
sweep by taking the nightcap 2-1.
The Cards, who' have won four
in a row and nine of their last
12 starts, boosted their lead in
the National League's Eest Di-
vision to 1/2 games over the
Chicago Cubs, who divided two
games with Pittsburgh.
Gibson, 11-9, becoming base-

ball's winningest active pitcher
with his 236th career triumph,
ripped both his hits off reliever
John Strohmayer after the Cards
mounted a 6-1 lead against start-
er Jon Matlack, 7-13.
Ken Reitz and Carbo singled
and Mike Tyson walked in the
fifth inning before the 37-year-
old Gibson rifled his second ca-

Hebner homers
CHICAGO - Richie Hebner's
tiebreaking home run in the
fourth inning carried Dock Ellis

10-9 triumph in the completion of
a suspended game.
Chicago held a 10-8 lead after
six innings of a contest called
because of darkness April 21.
The only additional run the Pi-
