Miller's single dooms Lyle, Yanks

Benga s
O's, 4 -3

From Wire Service Reports
Don't look now but the Ameri-
can League East is as tangled as
curly- hair after a shower. And
with the two top clubs display-
ing the classic inept form of chal-
lengers in the division have
shown of late, the horse race has
just begun.
And in the thick of all of it is
the team that was six games out
just one week ago at the All-
Star break,-the tortoise-like De-
troit Tigers. Last night they com-
pleted an almost unbelievable
three game sweep of the Balti-
more Orioles.
But despite their 4-3 loss, the
Orioles dropped not a stitch in
the standings, remaining one
game behind tiring but still pace-
setting New York Yankees. The
Yanks, who had captured ten of
fourteen recently, took a 4-3 dive
in Boston as Rick Miller singled
with two out off relief ace Spar-
ky Lyle in the bottom of the
ninth to give the Sox the game.
The Tigers took to the war-
path again last night and pound-

Kenny Singleton, who had previously doubled in the only Expo run, is tagged out by New York Met
backstop Russ Hodges. Expo pitcher rookie Steve Rogers pitched his second shutout in succession in
the first game of last night's doubleheader.
