Yankee rally nips Bosox;

rally past
Brewers
From Wire Service Reports
MILWAUKEE - It wasn't easy
for ace reliever John Hiller but
the sensational Canadian hng
on to record his 23rd save last
night as the high-flying Detroit
Tigers chalked up their sixth con-
secutive win, the longest Bengal
winning streak this season, by
nipping Milwaukee 6-5 in the
opener of a twi-night double-
header.
Despite giving up an eighth-
inning homer to George "Boom-
er" Scott plus a walk and a
single by Scott in the ninth, Hiller
bore down, retiring pinch hitter
Ollie "Downtown" Brown on a
grounder to Dick McAuliffe to
give fireman Bob Miller his third
win. Scott's single came follow-
ing a free pass to Bob Coluccio
and strike outs by Pedro Garcia
and Dave May, the AL's hottest
,}itter with a 24-game hitting
streak
A pair of three-run rallies gave
the Bengals the victory. In the
seventh inning, singles by Gates
Brown and Bill Freehan and a
throwing error by Coluccio put
the Tigers ahead to stay.
