From wire Service Reports
Detroit struck for four runs in
the second inning, two on a
throwing error by shortstop Gene
Michael, and M i c k e y Lolich
spaced five hits to give the
Tigers a 7-2 triumph over the
New York Yankees last night.
The Tiger win coupled with
the Orioles' split of a twi-nite
doubleheader with Boston moved
the Detroiters into a virtual tie
for second with New York, a
half game behind Baltimore. Bos-
ton remained 1 hback.
Lolich, 11-10, pitched his 16th
complete game in 29 starts and
outdenled Sam McDowell, 5-3.
Dick Sharon started the Tigers
rally in the second with a single.
Bill Freehan walked and Aurelio
Rodriguez singled in a run. Ed
Brinkman followed with an infield
single to deep short which Mi-
chael threw wild to first, allow-
ing Freehan and Rodriguez to
score. Tony Taylor added an RBI
In Baltimore, the Orioles -poil-
ed Dick Pole's major league dc-
but by blasting him for 10 hits in
32 innings and went on to de-
feat the Boston Red Sox 8-2 for
a split of yesterday's twi-Night
doubleheader that enabled the
Orioles to hold onto first place in
baseball's American L e a g u
Dwight Evans and Rico Pet-
rocelli delivered two-run singles
as the Red Sox scored seven
times in the fourth inning to
erase a four-run deficit and take
the opener 8-5.
Pole, just ip from the minors,
was staked to a 2-0 lead but the
Orioles tied the score in the bot-
tom of the first before Pole could
retire a batter on singles by
Mark Belanger, Rich Coggins,
Tommy Davis and Boog Powell.
They took a 4-2 lead in the
third on two-out singles by Davis,
Powell, Paul- Blair and Terry
Crowley. Two-out s i n g 1 e s by
Larry Brown and B e l a n g e r
chased Pole in the fourth and
Merv Rettenmund greeted Craig
Skok with a two-run double.
Over in the National League's
Eastern Division, affairs also
tightened up as the Mets' 7-3 vic-
tory over the front-running St.
Lois Cardinals enabled the Cubs
and Pirates to each gain a full
game on the Redbirds. Chicago
shut out the Expos, 3-0, and Pitts-
burgh defeated Philadelphia, 3-1.
Don Hahn's run-scoring single
in the fifth inning snapped a tie
and Willie Mays hit a three-run
homer in the seventh, leading the
New York Mets to their victory
over the Cardinals last night.
Mays' blast, his fifth of the
year and 659th of career, came
off Diego Segui with two out in
the seventh after a walk to Mat-
lack and Felix Millan's single,
the 1,000th hit of his career.
In Philadelphia, home runs by
Willie Stargell and Manny San-
guillen carried Pittsburgh to its
victory over the Philadelphia
Phillies last night.
Rookie John Morlan, recently
called up from the International
League, earned his first major
league victory with relief help
from Ramon Hernandez. Morlan
allowed just four hits through
In the first inning, Stargell
followed a triple by Al Oliver
with his 32nd home run of the
baseball season to saddle Steve
Canlton with his 12th detest. The
left-hander, last year's Cy Young
Award winner in the National
League, has von 10 games so far
Rick Reischel pitched a four-
hitter and drove in a run in the
Chicago Cubs' victory over Mon-
Renschel, 12-8, retired 16 bat-
ters in a row at one point and
finished with 11 strikeouts and
no walks. He was only in trouble
in the first inning when Mike Jor-
gensen doubled with one out. But
Jorgensen was left stranded when
Ron Fairly and Ken Singleton
The Cubs now trail St. Louis
by 2% games and the Pirates are
just 5 games off the pace.
RED RELIEVER Pedro Borbon enters the first game of last night's twinbill with the Astros and re-
places the Red starter Gary Nolan (headless). Houston won the opener, 1-0, in 10 innings.

Hayes ticked off. "We also have

Hayes was so jovial he said:
"I even enjoyed talking to Bo
Schembechler today - and
that's all wrong."
Schembechler, coach of co-
champion Michigan, was far
less effusive about the Wolver-
ines, although he pointed out
that of a class of 35 players he
recruited three years ago, 30
are still in uniform.
"We expect our senior group
to continue the tremendous lead-
ership job as it has done the
past four years," said Schem-
bechler. "I think the Big Ten
will be extremely tough this year
and this will be a very interest-
Alex Agase, switching from
Northwestern to Purdue, sim-
ply said it was "an opportunity
I truly wanted" to take over
the Boilermakers, who finished
third in the Big Ten last season.
John Pont, who moved from
I n d i a n a to succeed Agase
at Northwestern, predicted the
Wildcats would be "very com-
petitive, hopeful of a first divi-
Lee Corso, Pont's successor at
Indiana, describing the Big Ten
as "the finest conference in the
world," jested: "All the pre-
dictions have us with a 1-10 re-
cord, but we'll do better - at
least 2-8, I'll guarantee."
Another new coach, Dennis
Stolz of Michigan State, as-
serted his ambition was to
"bring the Spartans back to be-
ing a national power."
Minnesota's Cal Stoll and Wis-
consin's John Jardine both said
their chances hinged on surviv-
ing the early stages of tough
Iowa's Frank Lauterbur, who
played as many as 15 freshmen
last season, said "we feel a
great deal of optimism, al-
though we again will be a
Bob Blackman conceded his
Illinois team faces a less suici-
dal schedule than last season-
"it has to be better with South-
ern California not on it." Black-
man said, however, the Illini
may have the smallest defensive
unit in the Big Ten.
