Rangers humble Tigers, 6-3

Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Last night's
Detroit Tiger-Texas Ranger
game was similar to many
of past years. Billy Martin
was sitting in the dugout,
cajoling, s c h e m i n e, and
watching his team slaught-
er an overmatched f o e.
Only this time Martin was
wearing a T e x a s Ranger
Brash Billy returned to the
sight of many past escapades
last night, and his Rangers
came away with a 6-3 victory
over his former team. The
Rangers raked Joe Coleman
and Luke Walker for 17 hits,
to hand the victory to Jackie
Brown, now 5-2.
COLEMAN, who hs lost his
last six decisions and is 6-7 on
the year, started serving up
batting practice in the first in-
ning after two were retired,
Alex Johnson had a single turn-
ed into a double by Jim North-
rup's outfield misfort-tes, and
Jeff Burroughs walked.
Mike Hargrove then iashed
a double that scored Johnson,
Burroughs stopping at third. Jim
Spencer followed with a single
to drive home the two base-
runners, but got himelf caught
in a rundown attemnting to
stretch the hit into a double.
Toby Harrah led off the fourth
with a single and, as is the cs-
tom with those who nlay the
Tigers, stole second. lke Sims,
a former Tiger Stadium favo-
rite, belted a long drive that
curved foul. But Coleman did

not take the warning, since two
pitches later Sims hit a long
drive that did not curve foul,
and Texas led, 5-0.
Texas added their final run
off Luke Walker in the seventh
on consecutive singles by Har-
grove, Spencer, and Harrah.
Brown, who had blanked the
Tigers on two hits through the
first five innings, never pos-
sessed good control and began
to late in the game. Gates
Brown singled ,and pinch run-
ner John Knox was forced by
Aurelio Rodriguez. Pinch hit-
ter Norm Cash came out of the
doghouse to triple Rodriguez
home, and came home himself
on a single by Gary Sutherland.
The Tigers added an unearned
run in the ninth as Rodriguez
scurried home after Lenny Ran-
dIe booted a grounder by Suth-
erland. By then, Steve-Foucault
had come on in relief of Brown.
Martin was given a loud chor-
us of cheers when he came out
to present the lineup before the
game. It was a nice sound, but
he enjoyed the sound of seven-
teen hits more.
BoSx bounce
By The Associated Press
BOSTON - Dwight Evans
hoisted a Vida Blue fastball
down the right field line for a
three-run homer and Luis Tiant
continued his outstanding pitch-
ing Monday night, leading the
Boston Red Sox to a 4-1 victory
over the Oakland A's 4-1 in a
duel of American League divi-
sion leaders.
Evans, a big right - handed
slugger, capped a decisive four-
run fifth inning against Blue
with his fifth homer which cur-

led just inside the foul pole in
the nationally televised game.
That was all Tiant needed in
going the distance for the
eighth consecutive time and
boosting his record to 8-5 after
a slow start.
The veteran right-hander,
winning his sixth game in a
row, scattered six hits, struck
out six and walked two.
Angels offed
NEW YORK - Lou Piniella
produced the winning run with a
double in the eighth inning,
leading the New York Yankees
to a 7-5 victory over the Cali-
fornia Angels last night.
Elliot Maddox drew a one-out
walk off reliever Skip Lock-
wood and came in with the tie-
breaking run on Piniella's two-
run hit into the left-field cor-
ner. The Yankees added their
seventh run on Bobby Murcer's
A sacrifice fly by pinch-hitter
Winston Llenas in the seventh
inning tied the game at 5-5 for
Birds belted
Darwin's two-run triple high-
lighted a five-run seventh inn-
ing, leading the Minnesota
Twins to a 9-1 rout of the Bal-
timore Orioles last night.
Tony Oliva lined a two-run
single before Darwin's triple
and Eric Soderholm drove in
the fifth run of the inning with
a single.
Soderholm singled in Min-
nesota's first two runs in the
first inning and the Twins took
a 3-0 lead in the fourth off Dave
McNally, 4-5, when Rod Carew
singled home Glenn Borgmann.

THE TALL TOAD, Tom Burleson, jives with the media after
signing a Seattle SuperSonics contract, yesterday. (For story,

BILLY MARTIN, former Detroit Tiger manager, discusses the improvement in climate Martin now enjoys as *anager of the Tex-
as Rangers with present Tiger skipper Ralph Houk before last night's game. Martin's Rangers enjoyed the game also, thumping
the Tigers 6-3.
