i'ers spl't w'th A's

By The Associated Press
DETROIT - Jim Perry
and John Hiller checked
Oakland on five hits and
the Detroit Tigers defeated
the A's 2-0 for a split of
yesterday's twilight double-
Reggie Jackson doubled
home the tie-breaking run
off Mickey Lolich in the
eighth inning of the opener
and scored on a sacrifice fly
by Gene Tenace, pacing the
A's to an 8-4 triumph.
Detroit Manager Billy Martin
played the second game under
protest because Oakland Man-
ager Dick Williams didn't have
position's indicated on the A's
line-up card. Martin was ejected
from the opener after an argu-
ment with umpire Larry McCoy
over a play at first base.
Perry, who had lost five of his
last six previous decisions, even-
ed his record at 10-10. It was his
22nd career triumph over the
A's, more than any other pitcher
except California's Steve Barber.
Detroit scored its first run in
the fourth inning of the nightcap
on singles by Frank Howard,
Bill Freehan and Aurelio Rod-
riguez. The Tigers added a run
in the sixth off Paul Lindblad,
0-4, on singles by Freehan and
Dick Sharon, plus a throwing
error by second baseman Mike
Seven different batters drove
in the eight Oakland runs in the
opener. Bert Campaneris drove
in two runs with a game-tying
single in the fourth off Lolich,
11-11, after singles by Gene Te-
nace, Jesus Alou and Ray Fosse
loaded the bases. M
Oakland broke a 3-3 tie with
three runs in the eighth. Sal
Bando opened the inning with a
triple and Jackson followed with
his double. Jackson continued to
third when right fielder Sharon
misplayed the ball for an error.
After reliever Bob Miller walk-
ed Deron Johnson, Jackson
scored on Tenace's sacrifice fly
and Johnson came around on
singles by Ray Fosse and Dick
Bill Freehan homered for De-
troit in the bottom of the eighth,
his third of the baseball season,
but the A's picked up two in the
ninth on Billy Conigliaro's sac-
rifice fly and Alou's RBI single.
Al Kaline also homered for
Yankees divide
NEW YORK - Matty Alou

drilled three hits, including a
home run, leading the New York
Yankees to a 3-1 victory over
Texas and a split of yesterday's
twi-night double-header.
The Rangers took the first
game 2-1 behind the five-hit
pitching of Jim Bibby, who pitch-
ed out of deep trouble in the ninth
In the opener, the Rangers
scored both their runs in the
second inning against Sam Mc-
Dowell, 5-4. Designated hitter
Alex Johnson opened with a
double, Jeff Burroughs walked
and Toby Harrah singled, filling
the bases. A wild pitch scored
one run and Jim Spencer sing-
led off the glove of left fielder
Roy White for the other.
Bibby, 6-5, blanked the Yan-
kees on three hits until Alou op-
ened the ninth with a single,
White walked and Bobby Murcer
doubled for New York's run with
none out. After Ron Blomberg
was purposely passed, loading
the bases, Graig Nettles lined
to first baseman Spencer for an
unassisted double play. Pinch
hitter Thurman Munson was hit
by a pitch, reloading the bases,
but Felipe Alou grounded out.
The Yankees obtained relief
pitcher Wayne Granger from the
St. Louis Cardinals yesterday for
two players to be named later.
Soxed royally
KANSAS CITY-Lou Piniella's
double with two out in the bot-
tom of the 11th inning scored
Rick Reichardt from second base
and gave the Kansas City Royals
a come-from-behind 7-6 victory
over the Boston Red Sox last
With the score tied 1-1, the Red
Sox broke loose for five runs in
the top of the fourth. But the
Royals got three of them back
in the bottom of the inning, then
tied it in the sixth on Fred Pa-
tek's fourth home run of the
baseball season, Cookie Rojas'
single and Reichardt's triple.
Reichardt started the Royals'
winning two-out rally against
Craig Skok, 0-1, with a single to
left and Hal McRae kept it go-
ing with a single to left-center
before Piniella doubled to the
right field corner.
