,t 2-0
Mickey Lolich hurled his 11th
straight complete game for the
Detroit Tigers and beat the
Orioles 2-0 last night, snapping
Baltimore hurler Mike Cuel-
lar's nine-game winning streak.
Lolich, the portly left-hander,
struck out nine and allowed
seven hits while running his
record to 10-7. He has won nine
of 11 since May 14, including his
last five in a row.
Designated hitter Al Kaline
tagged Cuellar, 9-4, for a two-
ont triple in the third inning.
Then Willie Horton, out of the
starting lineup for a week with
a sore right knee, celebrated
his return with a single that
knocked in Detroit's first run.
Cellar then yielded a ground
rule d'oble to Bill Freehan, and
walked both Aurelio Rodriguez
and Jim Northrup to force in
the Tigers' other run.
After disputing the call on one
of the pitches to Northrup,
Cuellar continued arguing as he
left the mound following the
third out, and was ejected from
the game by home plate umpire
Russ Goetz. Baltimore Manager
Earl Weaver joined the dispute
and also was tossed out.
Lolich left two Baltimore run-
ners stranded in the fifth, sixth
and seventh innings. He fanned
Earl Williams and retired Don
Baylor on a foul pop in the
sixth with runners at second
and third.
The victory enabled Detroit
to maintain its runner-up posi-
tion in the American League
East and dropped Baltimore
into fourth place behind the
Cleveland Indians.
Lolich, who lost to the Orioles
on opening day, has more vic-
tories against Baltimore than
any active pitcher and a 24-15
lifetime record.
He allowed two hits in the
fifth, a hit and a walk in the
sixth, and two more hits in the
Cuellar,.19-S since last Aug. 9.
struggled through the first two
innings w h i 1 e issuing three
walks and then suddenly col-
lapsed after retiring the first
two batters in the third.
